The Iacocca International Internship Program (IIIP) provides practical work experience, grounded in global context, aimed at enhancing students’ career readiness and intercultural competency.
The Summer 2022 application is now closed. Please check back in September 2022 for information on the application process for Summer 2023.
About the Program
Since 2011, IIIP has provided mostly funded internship opportunities for Lehigh students to work or do research overseas during the summer. When COVID-19 impacted students’ ability to travel, IIIP pivoted to provide virtual internships for students. In Summer 2022, IIIP intends to offer both in-country and virtual internships for students. (read the 2020 Student Report).
