Redlands Community College to select 8 students for NASA summer program

El Reno, Okla. – Redlands Community College has been funded to select eight students for a NASA summer program. Students selected for the UR NASA program will participate in a summer inquiry-based learning project under the mentorship of college faculty and industry partners. The Project UR NASA summer experience is an opportunity for students interested in careers in science, technology, engineering, agriculture and mathematics.

“We are looking for exceptional graduating high school seniors and first semester freshmen interested in jump starting their higher education opportunities through this summer experience,” according to Associate Vice President for Communications and Research, Dr. Amanda Evert. “This innovative learning experience will offer small class-sizes and one-on-one interactions with industry partners designed to empower students to gain the skills they will need to excel in a transfer University program.”

Students selected for the program will have the opportunity to live in Redlands Community College’s NASA Scholars Living/Learning Community in the Cougar Crossing Residential Apartments. Students will enjoy private rooms, fully-furnished community living spaces and the opportunity to be completely immersed in hands-on, real-world learning experiences. Students will receive a $1,000 scholarship to pay for summer course experiences. Additionally, students will be eligible for $2,000 in internship and job shadowing experiences.

“Our participation in the UR NASA summer program is a wonderful opportunity for students to experience hands on learning in a fun and exciting venue,” stated President Jack Bryant. “This is a unique opportunity for the participants.”

Project administrators will start reviewing applications on Feb. 20. However, students are welcome to continue submitting applications until all eight openings are filled.
