2023 RAIN Internship Opportunity

The USDA-funded Rainfed Agriculture Innovation Network (RAIN) project will host a Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program in the Summer of 2023. The program dates are May 31-August 04, 2023. RAIN REU participants will contribute to collaborative, interdisciplinary research projects relating to rainfed agricultural production.

Available research projects span a variety of methods and topics and aim to sustainably increase the productivity of rainfed agricultural systems while restoring and enhancing soil health. Ten selected students will be paired with a faculty advisor and a graduate student mentor at one of the team institutions in Kansas, Oklahoma, or Arizona. The program provides a generous $9,000 stipend to cover housing and living expenses of the participants. Qualified undergraduate students are encouraged to apply by January 20, 2023. Descriptions of the summer research projects and the link to apply are available at
