Summer, Internship, and Volunteer Opportunities Abroad

Other than a semester abroad, there are many opportunities for students to gain international experience, including doing a program over the summer or working or volunteering abroad. The following pages have some preliminary information regarding these opportunities.

Volunteering/Teaching/Interning Abroad

Please see Internships and Volunteer Opportunities Abroad for more information.

Summer Study Abroad

Summer Study Abroad is not regulated by the Office of International  & Intercultural Student Programs. It is treated as any other summer study undertaken here in the U.S. Please consult the registrar's policies on summer study for detailed information about credit transfer.

Barnard College Study Abroad does not endorse any particular summer study abroad programs. In general, it is up to you to find a program that meets your needs and the standards of Barnard College. We recommend that you start by looking at summer programs run by colleges and organizations that have semester/year programs on our approved programs list.

To that end, we can provide general summer program information. Please contact Mark Farrell at with specific questions.

Some of the scholarships listed on our Scholarships page, have options for summer study abroad, including the Gilman Scholarships, FLAS Scholarships and Critical Need Language Scholarships.
