Fall 2018 Freshman Pilot Program Application
Please submit this application by Friday, 10/5 at 11:59pm if you would like to be considered for Cornell University Sustainable Design's Freshman Pilot Program (open to freshman and sophomore transfer students)

The CUSD Freshman Pilot Program is an intensive one-semester program that will immerse 20 highly-motivated first-year students in the world of CUSD. The program is designed to both promote group bonding among the cohort and prepare the class with the background knowledge and technical skills necessary to contribute to the team of their choice. Once accepted, recruits will be assigned a mentor within CUSD and participate in the new member development to aide their acclimation to CUSD culture.

*A new project not yet featured on our website is Project One Smithsonian Plastic Reduction Initiative (OSPRI). The project team works directly with the Smithsonian National Zoo to develop a comprehensive plan on how to eliminate single use plastic water bottles. The Smithsonian would use this plan as a pilot program with the goal of rolling out similar plastic reduction initiatives at other Smithsonian museums and facilities.
