For Graduate Students

The Mario Einaudi Center for International Studies is a place for graduate students to ask critical questions, grow as scholars and leaders, and build relationships on campus and around the world.

Eun A Jo is a PhD candidate in government. Since arriving at Cornell, she’s joined Einaudi’s global research priorities, received travel grants, and found an intellectual community and funding in the Einaudi Center’s Reppy Institute for Peace and Conflict Studies and East Asia Program.

Welcome to the Einaudi Center

Stop in to see us when you’re on campus! We’re on the ground floor of Uris Hall behind Rusty’s Café.

At Einaudi you’ll find opportunities—opportunities to build connections with faculty and graduate students across disciplines, apply for research funding, learn languages essential to your fieldwork, attend events to shape your thinking, and more. Explore this page and our website to discover what’s in store at the Einaudi Center.

Connect with Our Programs

The Einaudi Center has eight regional and thematic programs, and each program has core faculty researchers, energetic graduate students, and regular opportunities to get involved. Reach out to any program to get started!

Get Involved in Research

The Einaudi Center’s global research priorities are one of the ways our researchers cooperate across disciplines to tackle some of the world’s most pressing problems. Graduate students collaborate with faculty fellows leading research priorities and faculty members at work in these vital research areas. 

Many grad students find productive research connections with core faculty in the programs and develop their own research agenda with program support.

We’re proud of Einaudi graduate students and postdocs who inspire the next generation of researchers by mentoring undergraduates.
