Thanks to the generous support of the Freeman Foundation, IWU will be able to support students to do internships in Asia for two months. This opportunity is available to U.S. citizens and permanent residents who are currently sophomores and juniors and who will return to the IWU campus for at least a semester following the internship.  International Students (sophomores and juniors) can apply for opportunities that are NOT in their home country.  Funding support includes:

  • Airfare
  • Housing
  • Living allowance
  • All internship placement and visa costs

Students who opt for internships are required to register and pay tuition for internship credit at IWU at deeply discounted tuition rate. There is a limit of one internship award per student.  Learn more about the Freeman Asia Internship Program & the former IWU Interns below!
