Virtual International Internships

A virtual international internship is an opportunity to work internationally for academic credit, and is typically unpaid. Internships are an excellent way to gain real-world work experience, develop contacts in your field and build your resume to market yourself for future career opportunities.

Internship details are as follows:

  • Internships are available in the fall, winter, and summer term
  • Internships start at 6-weeks and can be customized to fit your course schedule
  • Positions are unpaid, but students are required to enroll in the academic course as part of their internship (Course: GINS 3930 is half a credit and GINS 3931 is a full credit)


In order to be eligible for the program, students must:

  • have a minimum 6.5 CGPA
  • have 2nd year standing by the time they start their internship

Students enrolled in this program are eligible for the International Internship Bursary, which provides up to $2,500 in funding for these experiences. In addition to this, Carleton has recently been awarded additional funding available through the Global Skills Opportunities Program. The Global Skills Opportunity program is funded by Employment and Social Development Canada, and jointly administered by Universities Canada and Colleges and Institutes Canada. This program is designed to encourage and enable low-income students, students with disabilities and Indigenous students to participate in meaningful study and work abroad programming. Eligible students include students who identify as having a disability, an Indigenous Persons, and/or are receiving government financial assistance. Awarding of bursaries is subject to the availability of funds and bursary amounts will vary according to need. Further information and details will be provided once applications are received.
