ESF's culture of collaboration drives innovative discoveries in areas vital to the future of our planet. Research discoveries help to sustain our environment's health, preserve and conserve biodiversity, and keep climate change in check. New ideas emerge and innovation explodes when disciplines partner. 

ESF's world-recognized faculty work elbow-to-elbow with talented and passionate graduate and undergraduate student researchers as members of their research and scholarship teams. Students do research and scholarship that span disciplines and topics that touch every facet of our world. Research opportunities flourish, as students create their own paths and advocate in ways that improve our world.

In addition to working with ESF’s distinguished faculty, students have access to world-class research facilities. This combination offers rare opportunities for student researchers.
