The NEWT Research Experience for Community College Students (REU) is a 10-week summer internship designed to provide community college students with hands-on research experience in NEWT labs.

This paid internship also provides training in poster elaboration, how to deliver a successful scientific poster presentation, and write a research abstract. At the end of the program, participants present their work at the Smalley-Curl Institute Summer Research Colloquium.
