Welcome to Penn’s International Internship Program (IIP)
Penn’s International Internship Program (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 an award to offset their internship-related expenses, including flight, visa expenses, housing and food, funded by the University of Pennsylvania. These global opportunities allow students to apply the academic knowledge they have obtained, while enriching their overall Penn experience with diverse cultural and international exposure and valuable work experience.
If you are interested in spending a summer abroad doing work related to your academic concentration or interests, we encourage you to explore the IIP placements available and contact us with any questions.
The IIP application for summer 2013 closes tonight, February 1st, at 11:59pm! Recommendations will be accepted up until Monday, February 4th at 11:59pm. Best of luck to all applicants!

- Sulayman Junkung General Hospital is an inspiring place to be. The hospital provides vital care to many Gambians, trains medical students, and has reliable 24-hour electricity. The employees are organized well, understand their responsibilities, and are dedicated to their work. The hospital certainly lacks resources that would greatly improve medical care, but I believe a […]
