UW Study Abroad is excited to announce a new Virtual International Internship Program for Summer 2021. Travel may still be on hold, but students can still engage internationally while building skills, experiences and global networks this summer. 

Program Overview

  • Through one of our three UW approved providers (CIEE, Virtual Internships Ltd, or SIT) students can be placed in a remote internship with a company or organization abroad. 
  • Internships across all three providers range from 20-40 hours/week, and students can earn UW academic credit. 
  • Internship placements look slightly different with each provider, but in most cases, a student selects their career field of choice (i.e. finance, sustainability and environment, or media and communications) and communicates their geographic location preference(s). 
  • The program is not highly competitive, and a student is matched with a placement based on their skills, experiences and goals.
  • The priority deadline is April 1, 2021 for Summer 2021 start dates.
