CSMore Works


CSMore Works provides an opportunity for CSMore participants to continue building their relationship with CSMore Alumni, Bowers CIS faculty, and the Bowers CIS DEI team; receive peer mentorship from previous cohorts of CSMore; take advantage of Bowers CIS DEI academic support services, and engage in a series of social activities on campus and in the local community.

CSMore works benefits

Provided below are the benefits that are offered to students who have successfully completed CSMore during Summer  2021, 2022, and 2023.

Financial Stipend

Students who have successfully completed CSMore are invited to participate in CSMore Works (which is an extension program of CSMore). Within this program, students are required to participate in a number of academic, professional, and social activities as a cohort to continue building upon the strong foundation that was set for them during CSMore. Students will receive a $500 stipend for each semester that they selected to participate in the program (fall only, spring only, or fall – spring). Stipends are distributed in the summer and can be utilized to cover the student’s expenses in the program.

Engage in Mentorship Mixers

During the spring semester, CSMore alumni will be mentored by a participant from CSMore 2020, 2021, or 2022 who have successfully completed CS 2800, CS 3110, or CS 3410. Cornell Bowers CIS DEI will cover the meals provided in each mentor mixer.

Participate in Private and Group Tutoring

CSMore alumni will receive free private and group tutoring throughout the time that they are enrolled in CS 2800, CS 3110, and CS 3410 for a maximum of four hours per week. Tutors will be primarily recruited from CSMore, URMC, WICC, and ACSU.

Attend Corporate Events

CSMore alumni will engage with corporate representatives through in-person guided tours, on-campus information sessions, panel discussions, and professional development workshops.

Priority Access for DEI Events

Cornell Bowers CIS DEI offers a number of social activities throughout the academic year (that are often over capacity in participant registration). CSMore Alumni will be given priority access to attend at least one event per academic year.

Employment Opportunities

Cornell Bowers CIS DEI hires DEIB Ambassadors, AEW Facilitators, ARCS Tutors, and Summer Teaching Assistants/Resident Assistants each academic year. Applicants who demonstrate passion for our office mission and/or have participated in CSMore will be prioritized for consideration.
