Cornell Externship Program for Winter Break – January 2013

Please find details attached regarding Cornell’s Externship Programs during the winter break. These visits take place for one day, or longer, January 2-19, 2013. This program’s reach extends worldwide and hosts are welcome anywhere Cornell students can be found. Some areas where there are more students than hosts, and where the university would like to identify more alumni and friends of the university to participate, include:
