International Student Internships Available Through IIE’s Global Experience and Training Initiative

Students will be at the forefront of the upcoming United States presidential election with the University of Akron’s International Campaign Fellows (ICF) program, an exciting political science internship available through IIE’s Global Experience and Training (GET) initiative. Political science enthusiasts will learn about running a campaign, from fundraising and security to press coverage and budget management. Participants will attend events, experience grassroots campaigning, collaborate with professionals, and gain an inside perspective on the results of the U.S. election this season. GET opportunities are for international undergraduate and graduate students, recent college graduates, and young professionals.

GET connects international students and young professionals to unique research and internship opportunities in the United States. Through hands-on training in a variety of fields, GET participants create connections and develop distinguished skill sets while working alongside professionals in their fields. IIE, one of the world’s largest and most well-established organizations in international education and training, provides J-1 visa sponsorship and support throughout the opportunity.
