Stanford Global Studies offers Stanford students an opportunity to extend classroom learning to immersive, cultural, and professional experiences through the Global Studies Internship Program. 

Virtual or in-person internship positions cover a wide range of fields, including business, nonprofit, media, education, medicine, arts, technology, engineering, science, law, human rights, and government. The program also supports students for self-arranged internships. 

Currently enrolled freshmen, sophomores, juniors, seniors, and co-terms at Stanford in all majors are eligible to apply, including undeclared students. Some positions in Asia are open to graduate students. 

The overall stipend base of $5,500 - $6,500 per student is provided by the host organization, the program, or both.
