Environmental Defense Fund

Advancing Research and Transforming Policy

Cornell Atkinson’s partnership with the Environmental Defense Fund (EDF) sponsors research and an internship program. Through our jointly-managed grants program, we are accelerating problem-solving research relevant to policies and catalyzing the rapid integration of new research into policy.

Our partnership also empowers a new generation of student leaders to follow in the footsteps of EDF President Fred Krupp, who began at EDF three decades ago as an intern. Our summer internship program places students in EDF offices across the country to participate in practical solutions to environmental challenges and benefit from engaged, experiential learning.
