Students may study abroad, research, intern, or volunteer on a short-term basis during the summer or winter. While Cornell does not actively track or comprehensively advise on activities in which students partake during summer or winter breaks, we have compiled resources to simplify the process of locating opportunities.

Some programs offer credit, while others do not. For students interested in studying abroad during the summer or winter and transferring credits back to CALS, please consult the Credit and Policies page.

Although students work directly with the study abroad provider to apply during the summer or winter, limited information and resources are also available in the CALS Resource Library in 140 Roberts Hall or the Cornell Abroad Library in 300 Caldwell Hall. We frequently get asked where else to look for summer or winter study abroad opportunities. While certainly not exhaustive, some helpful links are listed below. Keep in mind that many foreign institutions also run their own summer programs, which can be easier on the pocketbook than going through a US-based provider.
