MHC International Internship Program

For over 175 years, Mount Holyoke College has been educating women for thoughtful, effective, and purposeful engagement in the world. Experience has taught us that international internships serve as one of the most powerful learning laboratories for the education of global citizens. To this end, the MHC International Internship Program (MHC-IIP) places highly qualified students as summer interns in select partner organizations around the world.

In summer 2020, some MHC-IIP internships have been cancelled, but many have been converted to remote. Please visit Mount Holyoke's Handshake jobs database, and search by MHConnect Global, to find still available internships.
