Summer Internships Abroad
The University of Richmond offers international internship experiences during the summer months to traditional undergraduate students. When interning overseas during the academic year or semester is not an option, a summer experience offers the opportunity to gain international work experience in a more compact timeframe.
Update: The application deadline for all Summer Internships Abroad has been extended to February 24, 2017!
UR Summer Fellowship Funding
These internships are eligible for UR Summer Fellowship funding as part of the Richmond Guarantee. Summer Fellowship funding requires a separate application after notice of placement, but several elements from the internship application process may be used for the Summer Fellowship application as well.
Internships that are both outside of the U.S. and outside of your home country are also eligible for Weinstein Summer Grant support for travel expenses. In order to be eligible, you must submit both a UR Summer Fellowship application to one of the five internship funding programs AND to the Weinstein Summer Grant program. Weinstein Grants are awarded on a merit basis.
Each program’s application information and deadline is unique. Review each program’s Fees & Timelines carefully and submit on time. Review costs and payment information for additional details about paying for your internship.
To earn academic credit for your internship experience, you must coordinate with a faculty member and pay the tuition fee (see the “For credit” values below). Complete the Individual Instruction Course Request form and submit to the Summer School Office in the Special Programs Building.

University of Richmond summer abroad programs are covered by the same health and travel insurance policy in effect for UR semester abroad programs.
