Internships for Viterbo, Italy

Internships are unavailable in Viterbo during the Fall '21 semester

USAC internships abroad are a great way to enhance your educational experience. Participating in a structured work or research experience with an international organization, whether in-person or virtually, will help you gain valuable skills and hands-on experience while expanding your professional network and immersing yourself in the workplace culture of Italy.

Beginning in Fall 2021, a $985 internship placement fee will be required of all students participating in an in-person USAC internship. This fee helps offset the costs of securing quality internship placements and helps provide a range of professional development activities, including an online internship seminar, career workshops, and panel discussions.

For more information on eligibility requirements and application process see the USAC internship page.

Virtual internships are offered through USAC’s Global Perspectives program. For more information about the program, see the Global Perspectives virtual internship page.
