Scholarships, Internships, and Research Experiences

We are dedicated to supporting you in and out of the classroom. We host workshops each term in collaboration with PCC faculty and staff to teach you about opportunities, how to apply for them, and how to optimize your PCC experience.

In addition to workshops, you can find opportunities to take your passion for STEM and Making to the next level through research, job shadows, and paid internships here.

Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU)

REUs are provided specifically through the National Science Foundation (NSF), a US government agency that promotes STEM education and research.

To find an REU opportunity that is right for you, search the directory at pathwaystoscience.org

You may also view a regularly updated Google slide Deck full of REU information.
