At the start of an internship, qualified applicants must meet one of the following criteria:

  • Undergraduate Students
    All undergraduate candidates must have completed at least two years of study by the start of the internship. For example, qualified candidates within the United States will have a minimum of 60 credit hours earned toward their bachelor's degree.
  • Recent Undergraduates
    Recent graduates may apply if they completed their undergraduate degree within 24 months of the internship start date.
  • Graduate Students
    Graduate student applicants can either be currently enrolled as students or have been enrolled within 24 months of their internship start date.

There are no age restrictions or citizenship requirements for interns.

If you are not a U.S. citizen and need visa sponsorship, Emory University cannot support an application for a J-1 visa unless you have completed your bachelor’s degree. Please email us if you have questions about obtaining a visa.
