IIP provides opportunities for outstanding undergraduate and graduate students to intern abroad for eight to twelve weeks over the summer. The majority of internship placements have been with non-profit or non-governmental organizations, but the nature of the placements varies greatly. Some IIP placements require office work, while others require hands-on work at field sites, schools, or clinics. Each intern will receive a modest stipend to cover their internship-related expenses, including flight, visa expenses, housing and food, funded by the University of Pennsylvania.

Penn’s International Internship Program places students in internships through a matching process. Students apply to the IIP program through an online application. After the application closes, the Penn leadership team reviews applications and schedules interviews with top candidates. After these interviews, the Penn team will match students with internships, based on each applicant’s skills and interests, and the needs of the host organization, taking into account what internship or organization will be the best fit for each student. The selection committee then ranks the students for each internship or organization. Each organization that sponsors an internship will be sent the application information of the top candidates. The organization will be given a chance to interview the candidates themselves before they make the final selection of the candidate they wish to accept.
Students selected for an IIP internship will receive a stipend to offset the cost of round-trip travel from Philadelphia to the internship site and living expenses. Any costs above the stipend amount must be covered by the student. We recommend you talk to past participants about in-country costs and budgeting for your internship.
IIP interns receiving financial aid, but expected to contribute summer wages towards their tuition costs, may be eligible to receive a waiver for the summer contribution.
We are happy to provide the necessary documentation for the waiver application. We encourage you to speak to a financial aid counselor to talk about your own specific circumstances. For more information, visit Student Financial Services.
For Summer 2013, there are intern opportunities at NGOs in Beijing.
