Summer Undergraduate Internships in France

CANCELLED - 2020 Summer Undergraduate Internship/Fellowship Program

The France-Stanford Center has been actively monitoring the evolving COVID-19 situation in Europe and especially in France. We have also been closely following the University's latest guidance to our student community. Our greatest priority, of course, is the safety of the students. For this reason, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the Undergraduate Internship/Fellowship Program for summer 2020.

The France-Stanford Center for Interdisciplinary Studies sponsors undergraduate internships with leading French-based institutions during the summer through the Global Studies Internship Program. Applications for summer 2020 internships are due on February 5, 2020.
