The Office of Science Education & Training (MSK) and Weill Cornell Medicine (WCM) are pleased to invite applications for the 2021 MSK/WCM Engineering Summer Program (MWESP). MWESP is designed to bring together undergraduate rising sophomores, juniors, and seniors interested in engineering and biomedicine for a summer research experience. Applicants must have a background in engineering, physical sciences, computational, or related fields.
The 10-week program begins on June 7 and ends on August 13, 2021. We are currently anticipating holding this internship in person, but will make a final determination about virtual vs in person in the Spring. We will continue to assess New York State guidelines and will post updates here.
Students who are accepted to MWESP will:
Participants will be paid $6000 for the summer. Housing available.
We strongly encourage students from groups historically underrepresented in science (disadvantaged, disabled, Black, Hispanic/LatinX, Native American) to apply.
Students will partner with faculty who have expressed strong interest in working with students with engineering skill sets. Please see here for list of faculty working in various biomedical research areas who welcome the added expertise of undergraduates from engineering backgrounds. Details about their research projects can be found by visiting their respective lab pages.
MWESP seeks current domestic undergraduate freshmen, sophomores, and juniors who are majoring in engineering, physical sciences, computational, or related fields. We strongly encourage students from disadvantaged and underprivileged backgrounds to apply.
Students can complete and submit the online application starting November 1, 2020. The application portal will remain open until February 1, 2021.
