Finding a Program

The University of Akron Faculty-Led and Departmental Programs

Below is a list of faculty-led and departmental programs that are currently available or have run in the past. Students should always consult the appropriate contact person to verify requirements and procedures associated with participation in these programs.

Affiliated Third-Party Program Providers

If students cannot find UA-sponsored programs that suit them, third-party programs are another option. While there are many possibilities, the list below is made up of organizations with which UA has concluded an Affiliation Agreement. These agreements provide some modest financial benefits to UA students, including waived application fees and/or modestly reduced program fees. In almost all cases, affiliation provides UA students access to provider-administered scholarships they would not otherwise have.

International Internships & Service Learning

International internships and service learning programs offer students the opportunity to obtain international experience and work and/or volunteer experience simultaneously. Below are options through UA departments, affiliated providers and a special program through the German government for students in the sciences and engineering.

Special Opportunities

The two programs listed below offer fully-funded opportunities to study languages deemed critical to US interests by the US government during the summer.

Options for After Graduation

Below are a number of post-graduation international options, including teaching, volunteering and studying further internationally.
