Real World Experience: India Internships  


About the India Internships

The Space to: Explore offers two internships in India each summer. You'll spend two months living and working for The Manipal Group, a high-profile, successful conglomerate of businesses located in Manipal, India. All expenses, including travel, accommodations, meals and incidentals are paid for. The internships are unpaid. If you're planning a career working abroad, this internship will give you valuable experience and a competitive edge when applying for employment or graduate school opportunities.

Who should apply? 

The internships are open to first-year, sophomore and junior students of all majors. 

Is India the right experience? 

India is a beautiful, vibrant and exciting country. Some notable differences in working conditions include a six-day workweek, with Sundays off. You'll enjoy the experience and have a better chance for success if you are able to deal with the longer workweek and also to handle a variety of tasks in your position. You must be able to handle the living conditions: your housing will be comfortable, but you'll be living in India during the monsoon season and the temperatures can be extreme. The first two weeks in-country can be a very difficult adjustment for some students. If you're adventurous and open to new foods, new people and new experiences, you'll do fine. We've never had a student ask to come home early, and you'll likely discover a love for the country that stays with you your entire life.

How do I apply? 

The internships are competitive. To apply, send a cover letter explaining your interest in the internship (and why you're the best choice!) and your resume to Jennifer Dillenger, Director, The Space, by February 28 at 5pm.
