Cornell University

Credit Internship Program

119 Ives Hall, 607-255-2266

Optional Stipend

Since the purpose of the internship is to provide a working and learning experience for the student, and because academic credit is awarded for the experience, no compensation by the sponsoring organization is required. Many students, however, cannot afford to undertake an internship without some financial support. Most organizations offer a stipend directly to the intern to help cover the extra expenses associated with the internship.  This stipend can take the form of a lump sum payment or a regular hourly wage.
