Cornell Fellows Program
Cornell Fellows is the college's premier opportunity for high-level internships and professional mentoring; Fellows apply the liberal arts to the world. Approximately 30 students participate in fellowships across the United States and internationally each year. Cornell Fellows are engaged in hands-on projects throughout the eight-week fellowship and receive financial support to offset costs associated with housing, transportation, food and supplies.
As a Cornell Fellow students participate in experiences connecting classroom theories with real-life applications. From this experience, Fellows develop a sharpened sense of their personal abilities and values which prepares them for a lifetime of professional service and leadership. With the support of a strong alumni and professional network and from exceptional faculty sponsors, a Cornell Fellowship is a distinctive and highly regarded aspect of a Cornell College education.
