Program Dates: 5 June – 5 August 2022

Applications are closed for 2022 and will-reopen around Dec. 2022 for the summer of 2023. 

CorGGLE is a new nine-week summer program that allows students from non-geoscience fields to explore opportunities for geoscience graduate study, specifically giving them exposure to myriad socially relevant careers in the geosciences.

Students will conduct a research project with distinguished faculty and staff, present their work, learn about geoscience careers from practitioners, receive training in professional skills and network with others in their field of interest through weekly luncheons.

During the summer, students will work on a research project with distinguished faculty and staff in one of these areas:

  • Energy & Water Resources

  • Environmental Science

  • Climate Change

  • Natural Hazards

  • Remote Sensing & Geographical Information Systems

Participants will also receive mentoring from folks working in these careers as well as professional development and the chance to network with others in their fields of interest.

CorGGLE stands for Cornell Geopaths Geoscience Learning Ecosystem (CorGGLE) and is funded by the National Science Foundation GeoPaths program that is part of the Improving Undergraduate STEM Education Initiative.

CorGGLE is housed within Cornell Engineering’s Office of Diversity Programs in Engineering (DPE) and Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences (EAS).
