PhD Commercialization Fellows

Graduate Students

At Cornell Engineering, we work closely with our graduate students from diverse backgrounds to ensure their success.

We assist students as they look for research positions, offer a variety of academic support services, encourage students to approach learning and teaching in new and innovative ways, help students discover organizations that match their interests, and provide extensive academic advising services.

The College of Engineering offices offer a constellation of structured resources and information designed to smooth the journey for our engineering students. Students bring their own unique vitality to Cornell Engineering, and their success is closely aligned with the success of the college.

The Commercialization Fellowship offers a unique opportunity for Ph.D. students to spend a fully-funded semester and summer in an intensive entrepreneurship program with a personal mentor to explore commercializing a product of the student’s choosing. 

Explore resources available to Cornell graduate students interested in entrepreneurship by checking out the Engineering Entrepreneurs in Residence program.
