Gallaudet Global Internship Program available for students who want to intern abroad

Gallaudet University Global Internship Program

The Global Internship Program gives Gallaudet undergraduate and graduate students opportunities to gain practical experiences while broadening their perspectives by being exposed to other cultures. Through the program, students engage in international internships, where they work with deaf, hard of hearing, and/or hearing populations for various periods of time (up to one semester). In the past, students have had the opportunity to serve internships in countries such as Austria, China, Costa Rica, Greece, India, Kenya, Guatemela, Colombia, Sweden, the Philippines, and more!
 
 

The deadline to apply to do an international internship for the summer of 2019 is March 1. NO EXCEPTIONS.

 

How can I find my internship?

Students are responsible for obtaining their own internship placements. Here is a "map" that can help you understand the process of finding an international internship. Students can find a list a international deaf and disability organizations here on the RSIA website. You can also search for an international internship through the IDMA program's website called "The Explorer." Students are responsible for reaching out to these organizations to see if they are willing to host an intern for a summer or semester.
 

I'm interested! What do I do?

Make an advising appoint with the Coordinator of Education Abroad! All students who wish to intern abroad, take classes abroad, or conduct research abroad must first fill out the Education Abroad advising application. It should take about 5 minutes. TAt the end of the form you will find a link to book a 30-minute advising appointment with the Coordinator of Education Abroad. You will not be allowed to attend your appointment if you have not yet filled out the advising form. If you have any questions, please email abroad@gallaudet.edu.
