Commercialization Fellowship - 2022 Application

Application Deadline: Tuesday, February 8 at 11:59 PM EST

Cornell Engineering's Commercialization Fellowship is for PhD students who are immersed in a particular technology, but now want to see it through a business lens. PhD students enrolled in any of Cornell Engineering’s departments can apply to be a fellow. Applicants must:
  • Have passed the A exam
  • Obtain permission and support from their advisor
  • Have a product or technology that has indications of commercial potential in mind (this is often or typically an invention from your research or lab)
  • Be willing to undertake deep commercial assessment process, including in-depth customer outreach and interviews
Typically, Fellows have completed most of their research and are close to completing their PhD; during the Fellowship, it is anticipated that the commercialization activity is a Fellow's primary focus, rather than their core research.
