Iacocca International Internship Program
Through the Iacocca International Internship Program at Lehigh University, students live and work overseas for six to 12 weeks in the summer, gaining professional experience while learning to navigate a different culture. The program began in 2011 on the belief that working abroad is a significant intercultural learning experience and gives students a competitive advantage in the global marketplace. The internships are fully funded, and the program prioritizes students who have high financial need or have never been abroad before, helping make international experiences accessible to all students. The program has grown rapidly—to date, 486 students have worked in 46 countries.
