Are you interested in going abroad to pursue an internship or service project next summer

Would you enjoy the opportunity to go through the process of finding and preparing for such an experience with fellow U-M students who are also interested in going abroad

Would you like the opportunity to advise and talk to students about your experience when you return

If so, then MIISP might be a good fit for you!

Objectives of MIISP

  • To provide students with resources and support for finding an international internship or service opportunity.
  • To provide students with information and resources on available funding sources through U-M offices.
  • To provide information and share expertise to ensure an experience that is educational and rewarding, including keeping students apprised of safety and health issues.
  • To provide a structure to share experiences with students with similar interests before, during, and after going abroad.
  • To provide opportunities for students to reflect and evaluate the impact of being abroad, personally and in relation to their future goals to maximize their total experience.
