My fellowship experience:
"As Cornell offers no course in Paleobotany, I am gaining knowledge on a topic that I probably would not have explored in my undergraduate career...As long as I have been interested in geology, I have wondered what it would be like to work in an academic museum like the Field. And I am very excited to see what more this internship has to offer and reveal."
