Professional twist on off-campus study
An additional off-campus opportunity available to Cornell students is the Cornell Fellows Program, a high-level professional internship and mentoring program. Since its founding 10 years ago, 269 students have been chosen as Cornell Fellows, which allows them to participate in experiences connecting classroom theories with real-life applications. Fellowships typically last two blocks, and Fellows work full time and earn academic credit.
Through this experience Fellows develop sharpened senses of their personal abilities and values that prepare them for lifetimes 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.
