ILR International Programs encourages all students to gain international experience while at Cornell through study, internships, research, or service learning abroad.  The ILR School supports this process through small grants and international advising.

Each year the ILR School welcomes students from around the world to study in both the undergraduate and graduate degree programs. Their diversity in culture, language, and life experiences enriches not only academic exchange but the Cornell community as a whole.
