Applicants must be at least in their fourth semester at UD in order to be eligible; first semester sophomores with exceptionally strong credentials may be considered on a case-by-case basis.

Once you have completed the online application, students are required to e-mail Karen Lunden(klundin@udel.edu) or Suzanne Stanley (sstanley@udel.edu) the following:

  • University transcript (unofficial transcript is accepted)
  • One-page cover letter to potential employers describing your skill sets and type of work placement that meets your interest. The letter must be thoroughly proof-read and error free.
Once you have submitted the required documents, the program coordinator will contact you to schedule an interview.

International Students: Please contact International Student & Scholar Services (ISSS) (oiss@udel.edu) before applying in order to discuss your eligibility to participate in the Virtual International Internship Program. International students who plan on working in the U.S., even for a company that is overseas, will need to consult with an International Student Advisor on whether work authorization such as Curricular Practical Training (CPT) is required to maintain your visa status.

  • Communication tools, including Zoom and Google Hangouts
  • Presentation technologies, including how to create narrated Google Slides presentations
  • Digital recording programs such as Screencast-O-Matic for synchronous and asynchronous use

Build Personal and Professional Development Skills along with other CAPA students around the world through:

Program Description
Gain international work experience and develop global professional competencies through CAPA's remote internships. In a world becoming more reliant on connecting, collaborating and performing virtually, our remote internships educate, enable and empower you to develop skills today that will prepare you for employers' needs of tomorrow.

Learn to work and excel in a global environment with international colleagues and student peers from across the US, gain remote professional networking and social skills, and learn how to communicate and operate in an international context. Plus, benefit from the 3 credit Global Internship Course, which focuses on building personal and professional development skills alongside other CAPA internship students. The course is delivered by dynamic academic coaches in a collaborative environment.

CAPA has been placing US undergraduates in global internships for more than 25 years. CAPA works with each student to find a placement that directly connects to interests and career goals. CAPA offers a well-established and highly respected internship program with hundreds of remote intern abroad positions available through our extensive network of placement sites across the globe.

Placements are available in a range of fields and industries, including:
Advertising & PR | Business | Communications | Data Analytics | Education | Finance | Fundraising & Philanthropy | Game Design & Development | Graphic Design | Healthcare & Life Sciences | Human Resources | Interior Design | IT & Computer Systems | Marketing & Communications | Sports Management | Video Editing & Animation | Web Design

Students will earn three UD credits for the internship experience by enrolling in UNIV 364 taught online.

The program fee includes placement in a major-appropriate internship based on the student’s qualifications, experience, and interest; an online orientation prior to the start of the internship, and ongoing academic support by the course instructor during the course of the internship experience.

The program fee does not include UD fall tuition; see costs below. In addition, participants are responsible for maintaining reliable internet connections and for being available for periodic meetings with their supervisors. Given the time differences, these meetings for Pacific locations will likely be in the evenings (on the U.S East Coast), or in the mornings for those interning with a Dublin-based organization.

Acceptance and scholarship decisions announced May 17. The full program fee is due in at the end of May. Students will be billed their regular tuition (resident or non-resident) in July based on their full fall semester enrollment, including the 3-credit internship course.
ACCESSIBILITY: Participants with disabilities should know that accessibility and accommodation in some program locations may differ from the United States. UD students with disabilities are welcome and encouraged to study abroad. Review these questions with the Office of Disability Support Services to determine whether this program can meet your accommodation needs.
