"The entire city becomes your campus; the museums, the history, the nightlife, and the political atmosphere provide an experience unlike anything Ithaca has to offer."Erin Noonan, CIW student spring 2013
Design your own once in a lifetime experience by spending part of your academic career with the Cornell in Washington program. There are opportunities for Cornellians and non-Cornellians (summer only).
All programs combine Cornell classes with internship experience and all participants reside at Cornell's Wolpe Center.
Open to any Cornellian, the Semester Program is the perfect blend of practical work experience and Cornell University courses, located in one of the world's great capital cities.
Urban Scholars Program
This program aims to support Washington’s most innovative nonprofit organizations and government agencies in their efforts to eliminate the fundamental causes of poverty. Offered during the spring, this program is a one semester opportunity to make a difference in a local community with the goal of encouraging interested students to search for a deeper understanding of the root causes of poverty in Washington, DC, and to pursue a long term commitment to enhance direct service, issue advocacy and policy change efforts. This program is only offered in the spring.
CAPS in Washington is specifically for students in China and Asia-Pacific Studies. This program is only offered in the fall.
