There are no citizenship requirements for interns. However, all applicants must be authorized to work in the United States. International students enrolled in U.S.-based colleges or universities are eligible with approval from your host institution.

If you are not a U.S. citizen and unsure if you are authorized to intern in the United States, please email to check eligibility.

At the start of an internship, qualified applicants must also 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.
