CLASSE Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU)

2015 REU Group

The National Science Foundation (NSF) has renewed our grant for a Research Experience for Undergraduates program in the Cornell Laboratory for Accelerator-based Sciences and Education (CLASSE), which encompasses accelerator-physics research and X-ray science. Logistics for the 2016 program will be similar to the 2015 program logistics.

Under this program, approximately twelve science and engineering students from around the country will be invited to participate in research at the Laboratory. There are several other REU programs on campus with whom we share housing and programs. Each CLASSE participant will receive a $5,000 stipend for their summer research work at CLASSE.

The ten-week program will start Monday June 6, 2016 and end Friday August 12, 2016. In addition to participation in research, the program will include informal seminars, formal lectures, tours of research facilities, social and recreational events, and a forum at summer's end in which participants present the results of their research.
