About IES Abroad & IES Internships

IES Abroad is a not-for-profit organization with a more than 65-year history of sending students on immersive, academic programs abroad.  In 2013, they developed IES Internships in order to accommodate the growing interest (and need) for hands-on experiential learning in diverse settings.  Most part-time and guaranteed, full-time internship programs:

  • Place you in full-time internships across the globe.
  • Put your internship experience into both a local and global context through a for-credit internship seminar.
  • Offer an optional, credit-bearing foreign language course where English is not the host language.
  • Are eligible for financial aid – review the available options!
