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. The application deadline is February 28th, with projects remaining open until a candidate has been selected. Please contact Connie Kan with questions.
