Engaging the Energy and Ideas of Emerging Scholars

At Cornell Atkinson, we understand that undergraduate students bring energy, creativity, experience, and a passion for real-world impact. To date, more than 70 undergraduates have contributed to Atkinson-sponsored sustainability research on issues from industrial methane emissions to a mysterious sea star disease outbreak in the Pacific Northwest.

Whatever your major, Cornell Atkinson has an opportunity for you to act on your passion for sustainability. Through Atkinson-sponsored research projects and internship programs, you can connect with faculty, fellows, alumni, and external partners to innovate in four key areas: increasing food security, reducing climate risk, accelerating energy transitions, and advancing health.

You may browse our faculty fellows database to identify potential faculty collaborators, explore sustainability-related courses, find a summer internship, and participate in Cornell Atkinson working groups helping to deliver large-scale, long-term sustainability solutions.
