Where will next semester take you?


The Hinckley Institute runs the University of Utah’s Global Internship Program for all U of U students. The program has grown into what is considered in U.S. academia as one of the most comprehensive and prestigious international internship programs.

Global internships are available for undergraduate and graduate students of all disciplines in more than 50 countries. Academic credit and funding are available for fall, spring, and summer semesters. The Hinckley Institute’s globally-recognized internship program has provided more than 6,000 students with transformative experiences since its establishment in 1965. The goal of the global internship program is to provide students with full-time, global work, cultural immersion, and career development opportunities. The Hinckley Institute sends students to various nonprofits, businesses, governments, think tanks, and NGOs across the globe. We also offer academic credit and funding support to students who set up their own global internships

*Due to the competitive nature of the global internship program, there is a minimum GPA requirement of 3.0; however, exceptions may be made on a case by case basis. Please send appeals to jean.oh@hinckley.utah.edu*
