Internships for Madrid, Spain

Due to ongoing health concerns related to COVID-19, internship placements requiring in-person contact with vulnerable populations abroad, including children, the elderly, and those with compromised health, will be limited and may not available due to local Covid protocols during the Summer 2022 semester. If you have questions related to this policy, please contact internship@usac.edu.

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 Spain.

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