An internship is one of the few work abroad options directly related to your college interests and career goals. Most offer no pay but many grant some academic credit, usually as part of a study abroad program. IU sponsors a number of programs that include internship components.

If after consulting the IU internship options, you do not find one that fits your needs, please consult our non-IU internship vetting guide for more information about what to look for in a non-IU internship program. For more information on applying to non-IU programs, please consult our non-IU procedures.

Study abroad is like spring training for this century. It helps you develop the fundamentals, the teamwork, and the determination to succeed."

-Hillary Rodham Clinton, U.S. Secretary of State
