Virtual International Internships

Work cross culturally for global employers and gain valuable skills for the workforce via credit-bearing virtual international internships that allow you to dip your feet into the study abroad experience!

Curious about what a virtual international internship entails? Here's a helpful resource that can be applied to any one of our partnerships as a general overview.


On your virtual international internship application, you will be asked to indicate which source of funding you're applying for:

  1. SPARK Grant for eligible students
  2. Non-SPARK funding (grants available through the CIE); eligibility requirements are as follows:
    • You are no longer SPARK eligible
    • An internship is required for your major/program
    • You demonstrate financial need (award based on need)
    • Preference is given to seniors
    • GPA of 2.5 or higher 
  3. Self-Fund (opt out of funding)
