CC-RISE is an eight-week, paid, summer research internship program for community college students run by the Center for Dark Energy Biosphere Investigations. Students will gain firsthand exposure to the scientific process by working in a faculty‐led research lab at the University of California Santa Cruz. In addition to research, students will participate in activities focusing on how to transition from a two‐year college to a university and information on graduate school. At the end of the program, students will present their results to an audience of peers and mentors.
