While many summer plans are in flux due to changes brought on by COVID-19, due to its entirely virtual, RAPID will continue to offer the RAPID Summer Intern Program as-scheduled to help provide additional growth and learning opportunities to any students working onsite in traditional internships or to those whose internships may be happening in a virtual capacity.

Do you have an undergraduate or graduate student intern working on a project which advances process intensification (PI) or modular chemical processing? Consider nominating them to be a RAPID intern in Summer 2020.
