Go Abroad Again
Feeling like you still have too many blank pages in your passport? Consider these opportunities to get back overseas:
- Study abroad again! Search for a study abroad program.
- Participate in an internship through UVA Global Internships
- Apply for Research Awards like the Harrison Undergraduate Research Awards and the Double Hoo Award
- Look at Graduate schools abroad (and explore funding, including the Rotary Global Grant). Learn about using federal student aid at international universities.
- Research fellowship opportunities through the Office of Citizen Scholar Development (and attend one of their monthly Introductory Workshops to learn more)
- Consider the Leifur Eiríksson Foundation Fellowships Program: The Leifur Eiríksson Foundation funds scholars who are U.S. citizens or permanent residents from U.S. universities for graduate research or study at universities in Iceland, and scholars who are Icelandic citizens or permanent residents from universities in Iceland to conduct graduate research or study at universities in the United States. One fellowship per year (the Robert Kellogg Memorial Fellowship) is designated for a graduate student from Iceland to study at the University of Virginia, or a University of Virginia student to study in Iceland.
- Consider international careers and employment:
- UVA Career Center: Global Careers Search
- Partners in Health
- IAESTE: IAESTE now offers students the opportunity to apply online for a paid, technical internship in more than 80 countries. All sophomores, juniors, seniors and graduate students enrolled in a technical course of study (engineering, science, architecture, computer science, agriculture) at a four year university in the United States are eligible. Citizens of all countries are eligible.
- Presidential Internship Program: At Al Akhawayn University in Ifrane, Morocco, the program aims to provide recent graduates the opportunity to learn about Moroccan culture and language, while working at an American-style university nestled in a pristine, peaceful region in the Middle Atlas Mountains of Morocco. Presidential Interns will spend one academic year working at AUI where they will develop crucial interpersonal and office-related skills.
