What Will Be Your Summer Story?
One of the most exciting chapters of your Middlebury education can be participating in an internship! An internship provides an opportunity to explore your interests and gain real-world experience -- you might follow a personal passion, connect to your academic work, volunteer with a not-for-profit organization, or confirm your interest in a particular career path. Whether you are teaching environmental education to children, crunching numbers inside a city office, or helping an international NGO achieve its mission, CCI is here is help you dream big and accomplish your goals!
Middlebury defines an internship as an experience that:
- Provides "real-world" experience beyond the classroom.
- Involves reciprocity, i.e., a mutually beneficial experience for both the student and the internship provider.
- Includes a high level of supervision, training, and mentoring.
- Typically takes place in winter term and/or summer.
- May be credit bearing, except for summer internships.
- May be a self-directed project.
- Can be local, domestic, or international.
