USC Global Fellows Internship Program

 

Description

The USC Global Fellows Internship Program provides funding for USC undergraduates to live and intern in Asia for ten weeks during the summer. This program seeks to promote understanding and develop quality relationships between the United States and Asia. Students will be selected through an application and interview process. Internships are likely to be available in commercial, political, and cultural centers such as Hong Kong and Taipei. This summer internship program is a great opportunity for students to develop international work experience in Asia.

Objectives:
1) Increase student understanding of international business, politics, and culture
2) Establish relationships with professionals in their field/industry
3) Gain invaluable work experience under the supervision of international and/or U.S. organizations abroad
4) Serve as ambassadors and representatives of the University of Southern California and the U.S.

Housing, airfare and international health insurance are covered upfront. Each student will receive a stipend (approximately $1,500 - $2,500 depending upon location) to adequately cover basic expenses, such as food, local transportation, and cultural activities. The program is not intended to cover all expenses, therefore Global Fellows should be prepared to contribute financially to their experience and budget wisely.

Interested in learning more about this one-of-a-kind program? The USC Career Center will host three information sessions in the Fall semester for undergraduate students to learn about the program and its application process, as well as hear from past fellows regarding their international work experiences.
