CLASSE and CBB 2020 REU Online Application Form

Information on CLASSE REU program can be found at:

Information on CBB REU program can be found at:

The CBB program is aimed at promoting diversity in the STEM fields. Students who share this goal, especially from underrepresented minority groups, economically disadvantaged backgrounds, or who are first generation in their families to attend college are encouraged to apply.

The REU program is open, by NSF regulation, only to US citizens and permanent residents. If accepted, you will be required to show proof of citizenship or permanent residency. This program is intended primarily for sophomore and junior students in science and engineering. In exceptional cases first year students could have enough familiarity with physics, engineering, or computer science to profit from their research experience. Students who have not yet enrolled as undergraduates and students who will have a Bachelors degree by the summer of 2020 are not eligible according to NSF regulations. If accepted, you will have to show proof of health insurance coverage for the period of the REU Program.

Your application should include:
  • Personal statement describing your experience, skills, interests and goals, and what aspect of the research at CLASSE or CBB 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, January 24, 2020 may not be considered. Please note that our REU program doesn't abide by the common NSF REU deadline for the student acceptance because none of other comparable sites that offer accelerator physics internships are affiliated with the NSF. If you receive an offer letter from us, you will be asked to inform us of your decision within the timeline that it specifies.

Diversity and Inclusion are a part of Cornell University’s heritage. The College of Arts and Sciences at Cornell embraces diversity and seeks candidates who will create a climate that attracts students and faculty of all races, nationalities, and genders. We strongly encourage women and underrepresented minorities to apply. Cornell University is a recognized EEO/AA employer and educator, valuing AA/EEO, Protected Veterans, and Individuals with Disabilities.
