Program Information

Internship and Training programs are designed for foreign professionals to come to the United States to gain exposure to U.S. culture and to receive training in U.S. business practices in their chosen occupational field.

The primary objectives of the J1 Intern and Trainee Program are to enhance your skills and expertise in your academic or occupational field through participation in structured and guided work-based training program.  The program strives to improve your knowledge of American techniques, methodologies, and expertise.  The Internship and Training Programs are also intended to increase your understanding of American culture and society and to enhance Americans’ knowledge of your skills and culture through an open interchange of ideas between you and your American associates in the workplace. A key goal of the Fulbright- Hays Act, which authorizes this program, is that participants will return to their home countries and share their experiences with their countrymen.

Only with your commitment as the next IGE Intern orTrainee can we achieve these objectives and continue on our mission of “Educating Tomorrows’ Leaders”.
