Deadlines-The deadlines for summer (and fall) internships are quickly approaching. While some deadlines especially for research opportunities are at the end of January, the general IIP deadline is Monday, February 16th. Students who want to get academic credit for their international internship experience through the Worldwide Internship Program (WIP) must apply by March 6th. Students who want to do an international internship but do not have the details finalized or have not been accepted yet by March 6th should still apply for WIP by the deadline if they want credit.
Scholarships-Many of the scholarship opportunities for summer (and fall) internships have deadlines in March. Check the IIP Funding page for a list of available scholarships to fund your international internship. For students taking the WIP course, IIP offers a need-based WIP grant to help offset the cost (deadline 03/15).
Upcoming Events-IIP will be attending the upcoming career and service fairs. We will also have info sessions (see attachment) on Journalism/Marketing Internships (1/27), Latin America and Spain internships (1/28), Teaching English Abroad (2/10), and Japan Internships (2/12).
Prospective students are encouraged to attend the International Internship Returnee Panel and Info Session on February 11th, from 4-5:30p.m in 260 Bascom. Previous interns will talk about their experiences and answer questions for students thinking about embarking on an international internship. IIP advisor will give a brief getting started session after the panel.
