The Dickey Center provides funding opportunities for students to broaden their international perspectives and their understanding of different cultures by carrying out leave-term projects abroad.

Gain new international perspectives by spending a leave-term living and working abroad as a Dickey International Intern.

The ideal Dickey International Internship enriches some aspect of your on-campus academic work. An international internship should also develop your ability to communicate comfortably with persons from other cultures and to understand the processes for addressing international issues that confront nations. Students should ideally be familiar with the language of the country in which they wish to intern.

Eligibility Requirements

  • Applicants must be undergraduates returning to campus for at least one term after completing the internship.
  • Returning interns agree to participate as requested in workshops or informational sessions relating to internships in general.


The Internships are unpaid but Budget as much money as you will need, $4,000 is just the maximum you can receive. Budgeting more or less money will not decrease or increase the likelihood your internship will get funded. BUT, be realistic about your costs and try not to over or underestimate.
