ABOUT THE PROGRAM

Summer Research student at Cornell Laboratory for Accelerator Research CLASSE
"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 Engineering and Research for Community College Students (SERCCS) program starts Tuesday, May 28, 2019 and ends on Friday, July 19, 2019.

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.
