The Siegel PiTech PhD Impact Fellowship supports Cornell Tech PhD students in technical fields to conduct 12-week summer externships with nonprofit and public sector organizations across NYC. Students immerse themselves in real-world projects, gain exposure to the technology challenges facing public interest organizations, and contribute critical skills and expertise to advancing their host organization’s mission.

The fellowship term is 12 weeks between June and August. Impact Fellows work 20 hours per week, to leave enough space in their schedules for independent thesis research.

We accept applications through 5 PM EST on February 5th, 2024. We select between 8-12 Impact Fellows per cohort.
