Syracuse University’s School of Engineering and Computer Science with funding from Thomas and Linda McCausland, have partnered to create engineering and computer science research opportunities for five talented rising high school seniors who reside locally.  This six-week non-residential summer program is an opportunity for students to work directly with SU research professors, graduate and undergraduate students on a specific research project.  Their summer research will conclude with a presentation and poster session.   Selected students that complete the program requirements will be awarded a generous stipend.  Interns will be selected on a competitive basis that looks at the students ability to meet the program eligibility requirements in addition to the courses taken, grades attained, extra-curricular activities participated in, the ability of the applicant’s essay to describe their reasons for wanting to participate in the program, as well as each student’s individual access to prior college level research opportunities.  Only those students who can commit to the scheduled program dates of June 29-August 7, 2020 should apply.

We encourage you to distribute this program information and website address to high achieving juniors that would not otherwise have access to college level research opportunities.  The application must be completed on-line by students and submitted by April 20, 2020.   The student’s transcript and current year record are required and must also be received by April 20, 2020.  In addition two teacher/counselor recommendations must be received by 5pm on Monday, April 27, 2020.  Information for references can be printed and given to designated references.  Recommendation letters should be written on school letterhead by a STEM teacher and/or Guidance Counselor who is familiar with the student’s academic ability and maturity and returned by mail to:  Summer Research Internship Program,  Attention: Kate Pynn, Director of Student Programs, College of Engineering and Computer Science,  121 Link Hall, Syracuse University, Syracuse, NY 13244 or e-mail to
