International Internship Grant

Students in a palm-tree lined parking lot hold up Walmart Intern badges.

Your mentor has suggested an internship in Belgium that would help you complete your honors thesis research. But how will you cover the budget?

We can help! The Honors College awards competitive International Internship Grants to students participating in unpaid internships abroad with research components or professional skills in a spring, summer or fall semester.

Current students, for information on eligibility, deadlines and the application, visit the Honors Student Hub (log in using your credentials).

Pro Tips:

  • The Honors College does not fund student travel to countries or specific destinations within a country listed with a Level 3 or 4 Travel Advisory by the U.S. State Department
  • International Internship Grant applications are due at least two months before your date of departure. You are welcome to apply earlier! Please note that review can take up to two weeks, so keep that in mind when deciding when to apply. For more information on deadlines, please visit the Honors Student Hub.
