My experience ended up being the absolute best that it could have been. I am an international business major worked for a company that worked with solar energy technology, and it was a great experi... A student - University of Alabama - Huntsville View Entire Review

I learned more during my internship in Barcelona than I ever have in classes here at Ohio University. You are thrown into the culture and it forces you to learn and adapt. Taylor W - Ohio University View Entire Review
Had the best couple months of my life, improved my Spanish, etc. You grow up a lot when you work and live abroad, become much more resilient because you need to roll with the flow. Jordan A - University of Southern California View Entire Review
YES! I spent a semester in Valencia, Spain in 2009 and was exposed to an entirely new culture with so much to explore. Barcelona offered the same type of cultural exposure and it increased my desire to travel and learn about other cultures. In the future, I will take advantage of any and all opportunities I have to travel. Ilse D - Worcester State College View Entire Review
The most rewarding portions of the internship were learning how the mental health system works in Spain, about the economic impact of the crisis on the types of services afforded to immigrant populations in Barcelona, and learning about the higher education system for nurses, psychologists, and psychiatrists in Spain. David T - University of Louisville View Entire Review
Our internships are customized to match your interests and your desired length of stay in Spain. Internships last a minimum of 6 weeks, but we encourage you to stay as long as you can. Obviously, the longer you stay in Barcelona, the more time you will have to immerse yourself in the local culture, practice your Spanish, learn the ins and outs of your internship, and make a difference in the organization in which you are interning. Intern in Barcelona offers both professional development and the chance to soak up all that Barcelona has to offer. Barcelona is home to more UNESCO World Heritage sites than any other city in Europe. Imagine the architectural and cultural splendor of a city with 2,000 years of history! Numerous museums, churches, cathedrals, and concert halls, plus the influential modern art of Antonio Gaudi, Joan Miro, Pablo Picasso, and Mies Van der Rohe, make Barcelona an aesthetically appealing destination for visitors from all over the world.

Recipients will select from a variety of mediums to share their story while abroad, in addition to submitting a photo testimonial.
