Summer Internships Abroad

SPCS plans to offer international internship experiences during Summer 2021. Availability and planning are subject to health and safety guidelines related to the coronavirus pandemic.

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.

Internship Providers

We offer international internship experiences in partnership with these experienced organizations:

  • Connecting Worlds Abroad (COWA)
  • Council on International Educational Exchange (CIEE)
  • IES Abroad (virtual internships only)
  • International Study Abroad (ISA) (only Spain internships available)

Internship Locations

Explore the placements available by field below, or review the list of participating cities and countries and link to the provider for more information. Prices for each experience are listed on provider pages. In the listing below, strikethrough represents a pandemic-related cancellation.

Register Your Participation

In addition to completing the application for your internship program, you will also need to register your participation with UR and pay the registration deposit. Deadline is extended to April 30.

Be sure to follow all other payment deadlines as well.

Travel Notices and Advisories

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