Through its affiliation with Princeton University, CMI serves as an interdisciplinary platform connecting innovative educational programs that engage and support undergraduate, graduate and post-doctoral students to become leaders in the fields of Climate Science, Carbon Capture and Storage and Integration and Policy.
As CMI is not a degree granting program, prospective students are encouraged to apply directly to the academic department of interest.
Princeton University offers a wide range of opportunities to undergraduate students interested in topics related to carbon mitigation, ranging from courses and certificate programs, summer and year-round internships to student run organizations.

The Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering Department at Princeton offers graduate level programs on energy and the environment in the areas of combustion and energy conversion, alternative energy sources, storage systems, fission/fusion and energy efficiency.
Princeton University's Program in Science, Technology and Environmental Policy (STEP) is based in the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs with strong ties to the Princeton Environmental Institute. The program offers a certificate for students enrolled in the WWS M.P.A. or M.P.P. programs and studies leading to a Ph.D.
The Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences (AOS) Program is a unique collaboration between Princeton University and the Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Lab (GFDL). AOS is an autonomous program within the Geosciences Department and hosts graduate and postgraduate students to conduct climate research.
The Princeton Energy & Climate Scholars (PECS) group is a Siebel Energy Grand Challenge initiative aimed at bringing together a select group of highly talented and engaged Princeton Ph.D. students with research expertise ranging from energy security and technology to climate science and policy.
The Inter-university Student Initiative in Carbon Sequestration (ISICS) is a forum for graduate students and young professionals conducting research in Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS). The group was created for members to exchange ideas, to facilitate networking within the community, collaborate on projects and improve on CCS communications and outreach.
Postdoctoral programs related to CMI are also available.
