About CIW

"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

 

 

Cornell in Washington offers a transformative, applied learning experience where students engage with the most pressing issues of the
day through dynamic internships, world-class courses, and community engagement, emerging as scholars, professionals, active citizens,
and leaders. 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.

Semester Program

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.

Summer Program

Full description of the Summer Program can be found here.

CAPS Program
