  1. Up-to-Date Resume
  2. Personal Statement of Interest (300 words maximum) 
    • This statement should explain your goals and objectives for the internship placement. Include information about the type of organization/industry that interests you and the skills you would like to gain through your work. This statement is really important in determining what options may exist for you.
  3. Professional Recommendation Letter
    • Submit a letter of reference from a previous employer or supervisor. If you are unable to submit a letter from a previous employer, please submit a letter of recommendation from a professor.

Internship slots are limited, so please submit your documentation to Mr. Albright as soon as possible to be given full consideration. You may be asked to do a Skype interview with Mr. Albright or with a potential internship supervisor before a final determination can be made. You will receive further instructions if this applies to you. 

Students must have already applied and have been admitted to study at the Vietnam Center before being considered for an internship. All accepted interns will be enrolled in IBUS 370 for your internship course and academic credit. Please consult with your academic advisors before applying for an internship to know how it fits in your overall academic plan.

Students from other institutions are also strongly encouraged to apply, but please check with your home institution about credit transfer rules for internships. If you are unable to get academic credit for an internship, but still wish to do one, contact us at Vietnam@LUC.edu to discuss your options.
