Do you want to be a Study Away Intern?

Every year the CICE hires former study away students to serve as the next year's Study Away Interns (SIs).

Click here to find out more about our current SIs.

Study Away Interns (SIs) are the first stop on most students' study away journey! SIs are returned study away students who use their own study away experience to advise their fellow students interested in study away by acquainting them with their options and the application system. SIs also help the CICE promote and manage study away programs and intercultural experiences in five focus areas:

  • Graphic Design
  • Social Media
  • Video Production
  • Event Planning & Coordination
  • Learning Content & Returnee Engagement

SIs will gain broadly applicable and marketable experience with advising, project management, event planning, marketing and outreach, and giving presentations. This internship is also an excellent opportunity for students who seek a deeper understanding of the field of international education. In fact, several former Gustavus SIs work in the international education field for universities or education abroad providers. See the full position descriptions here. 

Study Away Interns are hired in a credit-bearing Gustavus internship for the academic year. The team usually includes four to five SIs, and each of the SIs works 10 hours per week. The internship is for either 0.5 or 1 Gustavus unit each semester (most interns complete 0.5 units each semester).

After being chosen by the CICE to serve as an SI, the candidates must apply for the internship through the Career Center by the posted deadline. SIs must complete all the Career Center requirements and orientation. See the Career Center Internship website for complete details.

Application instructions for Study Away Intern posiitons will be sent to study away returnees during the spring semester. If you are interested and have any questions, please contact for more information.
