The National Science Foundation (NSF) has awarded us a grant for a summer research program for upstate New York community college students. Under this program, students interested in a career in science, engineering, and technology will be invited to participate in cutting-edge research at the Cornell Laboratory for Accelerator-based Sciences and Education (CLASSE).
The eight-week program will start Monday June 12, 2017 and end Friday August 4, 2017. In addition to participation in accelerator, x-ray science research, experimental cosmology and astrophysics, the program will include formal seminars, formal lectures, tours of research facilities, social and recreational events, and a forum at the program's end in which participants present results of their research. Participants will receive a stipend of $4,000. Local group housing will be provided through Cornell University Campus life, if participants prefer not to commute daily.
Your application should include: Personal statement describing your experience, skills, interests and goals, and what aspect of the research at CLASSE is of special interest to you, are required. An electronic transcript from your university (a scanned copy is acceptable, however we may request an original at a later time). Two letters of recommendation from individuals, at least one from a professor, who are familiar with your potential for research. Applications completed after midnight EST Friday, March 31, 2017 may not be considered.
