CGC Virtual Internships

Columbia Global Centers around the world have offered global virtual internships throughout their partner networks. Despite travel restrictions, students could find a rewarding opportunity as a global intern doing important work. 

Although we are not planning to offer internships for fall 2022, we may revisit offering global virtual internships in the future.

Virtual internships are meaningful experiences for students to support a variety of projects at organizations (businesses, NGOs, universities, research centers, etc.) across the globe, directly from their home. Columbia students can apply to any virtual internship across the Global Centers network.

HERE is the list of available virtual internships for Summer 2022.

The process is simple – just CLICK HERE to let the Global Centers know of your interest (sign in with your UNI). A representative from the Centers will contact you with further details and to connect you with the sponsoring organization.

No. This is where you simply tell us about yourself, why you are interested in a particular global internship opportunity, and what you hope to accomplish, both for yourself and for your internship partner. Think of it as a strong elevator pitch.
