CORNELL LABORATORY FOR ACCELERATOR-BASED SCIENCES AND EDUCATION — CLASSE

2016 Summer Research for Community College Students

[ About the Program | Research ]

ABOUT THE PROGRAM

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 13, 2016 and end Friday, August 5, 2016. In addition to participation in accelerator and x-ray science research, 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 $3,950. Local group housing will be provided through Cornell University Campus life, if participants prefer not to commute daily.
