We develop international internship opportunities for UW-Madison undergraduate students from all academic disciplines to develop a global talent pool to serve the needs of state, national and international employers. We are actively seeking organizations abroad that are able to offer substantive internships, whether in-person or virtually.
IIP works with you to customize the internship to your needs. We can help define the internship position, and assist in managing the recruiting and placement process.
See our Employer FAQ page and Internship Host Handbook for more details.

“Our interns from the UW-Madison have contributed greatly to our global policy research efforts. Their language skills and technical knowledge allowed them to be productive from the first day. It is a great experience for the interns and a fantastic opportunity for us to engage with talented students.”
