USGS started the Mendenhall Research Fellowship Program in honor of Walter C. Mendenhall (1871-1957), the fifth Director of the USGS. The Program provides postdoctoral Fellows opportunities to work on research with USGS scientists to enhance their scientific stature and credentials and to advance USGS science. The Fellowships are highly selective, with only 12-20 given out each year.  The postdoctoral fellows are appointed to the USGS for two years.  

Congratulations Emma!
