Fall 2021 Opportunities

Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland (FRBC) and Case Western Reserve University

The Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland and Case Western Reserve University are looking for up to 10 students to work on one of two FRBC projects mentored by CWRU faculty from the Department of Computer and Data Sciences. Students from a variety of disciplines, including Computer and Data Sciences, Economics, Finance, Data Analytics and others are encouraged to apply.  

Students are expected to contribute, on average, 10 hours per week for an academic year funding amount of $4,800.00. We also will consider semester by semester funding and can prorate the funding amount based on when student begins work.

The program especially encourages first and second year students, but also will consider third year students. Underrepresented minorities are especially encouraged to apply.  Because this project is funded by the Federal Reserve Bank, applicants must be United States citizens or permanent residents.

If you are interested in applying for one or both positions, please submit the appropriate application below along with your resume and cover letter.  Your cover letter should include information about your computer and/or data analytic skill level as well as classes taken, certificates received, etc. 

Position 1: Continuous Delivery Dashboard

Position 2: Transforming Tax Collections
