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.

Internship Providers

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

  • Connecting Worlds Abroad (COWA
  • Council on International Educational Exchange (CIEE
  • IES Abroad
  • International Study Abroad (ISA)
