AstroCom NYC:
A Partnership Between Astronomers at CUNY, AMNH, and Columbia University

We support CUNY students up to the challenge to join this exciting new community of New York City astronomers.

AstroCom NYC:

We have years of experience mentoring undergraduates in research on galaxy properties and evolution, nearby and low mass stars, evolved stars, numerical simulations and modeling, and observational astronomy from the radio to gamma-rays.

Students should be enrolled in a CUNY 2-yr or 4-yr college, and have an interest in pursuing a career in physics and astronomy as evidenced by their application essays, and choice of courses and major. Students from groups underrepresented in the sciences - e.g., African Americans, Hispanics - are particularly encouraged to apply.

Check back in Summer 2018 to inquire about the next round of applications.

For further information email astrocom at, or contact any astrophysics faculty at your CUNY campus.
