Greetings from New York City! 

Through the CIPA Externship Semester in New York City (NYC), you may undertake an externship for up to forty hours per week while completing professional development exercises through an intensive externship course. Fellows also enroll in a colloquium organized by CIPA featuring distinguished scholars and practitioners in the NYC area.

There is no residential opportunity through this program. Students are responsible for securing their own accommodations. Cornell staff members remain in constant communication with you through written assignments, and periodically travel to NYC during the semester to monitor your progress

There is no additional tuition charge for participating in this program, and students retain insurance coverage under the Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP) for the duration of the semester. For more information, please contact CIPA Executive Director Thomas O'Toole at
