Graduate Student Financial Awards

Cornell Engineering attracts smart graduate students from around the world.  We are focused on offering fellowships to every first-year graduate student, allowing many students to enter Cornell working with many faculty rather than just one or two.  Students have the opportunity to first explore a few fields of study before they choose to work in a particular lab.  We feel strongly that this creates the very best academics and leaders in research possible.

  • A full graduate fellowship is established with a gift of $1.5 million.  
  • An endowed graduate award is established with a minimum gift of $100,000.
