ABOUT THE PROGRAM

"I have truly enjoyed being in this program and having my first research experience. I wouldn't have succeeded without my mentor's help." - Dilmurod Saliev, 2016 SRCCS participant

The National Science Foundation (NSF) has awarded us a grant for New York State summer research program for 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 Summer Research for Community College Students (SRCCS) program starts Monday, June 11, 2018 and ends on Friday, August 3, 2018.

Application information for the 2018 Summer Research for Community College Students can be found at Academic Jobs Online. The deadline for completing the application and submitting the accompanying materials is midnight March 31, 2018.
Students must be U.S. citizens or residents to be considered for this program.

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.
