Cornell’s first Laidlaw scholars research, lead
By Megan DeMint
The Laidlaw scholars at Cornell are diving into a world of research. Over the first summer of the program, 24 Cornellians selected for the prestigious international program completed research projects on topics ranging from migration and big data to entomology, engineering communications and animal science.
Launched at Cornell in April 2021, the Laidlaw Undergraduate Leadership and Research Program promotes ethical leadership and international research for students at 13 universities. Administered by the Mario Einaudi Center for International Studies, Einaudi’s faculty connections and international focus connect Laidlaw scholars with mentors, global projects and opportunities for training and support.
