The Program

Apply for international virtual internship with CIS abroad.

Although not a substitute for a traditional on-site experience, virtual internships can serve as an important stepping stone to build up your skills, resume, and cross-cultural understanding. This can be a great foundation for future internships on site. With a virtual internship, work on projects for an international organization from your home base in the U.S. while adding a global perspective to your professional work experience.
