Application Process

All prospective participants who are not already Cornell graduate students should apply to a specific program in the graduate school. These are departmental graduate fields such as Geological Sciences, Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering, Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, Civil & Environmental Engineering, Systems Engineering, Materials Science and Engineering, Applied Engineering Physics, etc.  In the student’s personal statement that is required in the Cornell application they should mention their interest in the Earth Energy Systems graduate program.  Once admitted, they should contact Professor Jefferson Tester to insure inclusion on announcements.

Opportunities for Financial Support

Students compete for support from sources such as governmental or industrial fellowships, Cornell-based fellowships from the home department, their college, or the Graduate School, and teaching assistantships. Individual faculty participants also have ongoing projects for which they routinely can offer Graduate Research Assistantships.
