The American Indian Program (AIP) at Cornell University welcomes you to the traditional homelands of the Cayuga People and the Haudenosaunee Confederacy at large. Steeped in the discourse of Indigeneity, AIP provides a unique combination of American Indian Studies courses and other educational, social and cultural opportunities to Native students. We recruit Native applicants from all parts of the United States and Canada, through regional efforts and national conferences, and our student support staff helps students and their parents with all aspects of the admissions process.
