BCC Students to Intern at Princeton University this Summer
Five Bronx Community College students have been accepted for research internships this summer at Princeton University. Nkeh Perry Boh, a Computer Science major, has been accepted to the Cooperative Institute for Modeling the Earth System (CIMES) 2019 Summer Research Internship at Princeton University. CIMES, in collaboration with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory (NOAA/GFDL), recruits both undergraduate and graduate students for 8-10 weeks research internships in atmospheric, oceanic and earth system science.
Perry Boh will be based at Princeton University during Summer 2019 and work with host scientists at the NOAA/GFDL, a world-leading center of Earth system modeling, research and prediction.
Additionally, Willmar Guzman Ulloa (Math), Kariam Yihune (Computer Science) and Yasiris Ortiz (Computer Science major) have been accepted to Princeton’s Summer 2019 Molecular Biophysics Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program. Each BCC student accepted into the REU program will serve as an assistant in the research group of a Princeton faculty member who serves as a mentor and a research advisor.
The BCC student interns at Princeton University will receive a stipend, reimbursement for travel from their home institution, access to Princeton University rental housing and the university extensive library and computing resources.
Bronx Community College faculty were instrumental in making connections with Princeton University and in making these research opportunities possible for our students. Such internships are wonderful opportunities for qualified students to experience cross-disciplinary research with leading scientists and learn how to apply analytical and experimental tools in sciences.
Congratulations to all these talented BCC Scholars!
