STEM Summer Research Opportunity Program

The Summer Research Opportunity Program is a chance for local area businesses and academic institutions to contribute to the community through collaboration with a Chaffey College STEM student.

We (the SRO Program Staff at Chaffey College) recruit, interview, and hire quality STEM students with a strong desire to learn more about their academic area - either through in depth research at academic institutions, or through real world experience at local businesses.

Students are recruited starting in January, and are able to start when the Spring term is complete at Chaffey in May. They are normally placed for between six and ten weeks, for up to twenty hours per week, on a flexible schedule to meet both your and their needs, during the Summer.
