AstroCom NYC

A Partnership Between Astronomers at CUNY, AMNH, and Columbia University

We’re looking for CUNY students up to the challenge to join this exciting and supportive community of astronomers in New York City.

Program Details

Faculty advisors 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.

To Apply

To be eligible, students must be enrolled in a CUNY 2-year or 4-year college, and have an interest in persuing 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.

The application process will reopen in Fall 2014.

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