CCE Summer Internship Program

The Cornell Cooperative Extension Summer Internship Program has helped Cornell fulfill its land grant mission by engaging students in outreach since 2007.

Faculty and staff from the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences and the College of Human Ecology along with extension educators from local Cornell Cooperative Extension offices involve students in the college’s work to benefit New York State communities. From research to education and program development, interns are involved in a wide spectrum of activities which they document by blogging. Findings are presented in the late summer.

CCE Internships are available exclusively to Cornell University undergraduate students (excluding seniors graduating in May 2018) enrolled in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences (CALS) or the College of Human Ecology (CHE). CALS students must apply for CALS projects; CHE students must apply for CHE projects. Applications will be accepted until 3/5/2018 or until an acceptable pool of candidates is identified. Please contact Connie Kan at with questions.
