BURE helps Cornell Bowers CIS undergraduates gain new skills and explore research with a hands-on summer experience. Open to all Cornell Bowers CIS undergraduates, BURE pairs undergraduates with a faculty mentor for a 10-week summer research program. Applicants rank prospective faculty mentors from a list of participating mentors, and are then matched with a mentor based on both student and faculty preference. Applicants must have taken a core CS, IS, or SDS course, and are highly encouraged to speak with a prospective faculty mentor prior to applying. BURE is a full time summer job, with students required to attend all BURE programming throughout the summer.
Here’s what you can expect from the program:
Hourly wage (40 hours/week for 10 weeks)
Series of enrichment talks on technical and career topics throughout the summer
End of summer Research Symposium on August 9, 2024
Social events with other BURE scholars and mentors
Summer 2024 program dates are June 3, 2024 through August 9, 2024.
