ABOUT GRIP 

The Global Research & Internship Program (GRIP) is an NAU program that assists NAU students to search and secure international internship, research and volunteer opportunities that meet their academic and career goals. GRIP helps to connect students to opportunities abroad that meet their academic and professional goals as well as guidance to find possible funding sources to offset the cost.

Did you know that while 10% of university students study abroad, only 1% of university students complete an international internship or fieldwork experience? Take your resume to the next level, try out an international career, and see your discipline from a new perspective!

ACADEMIC CREDIT: 

You may be able to take care of a graduation requirement with your fieldwork! You can fulfill major, minor, Liberal Studies, Diversity, or general elective credits through your internship (pre-approval is required). Credits students typically receive include: Research (485/685); Independent Study (497/697) or Fieldwork Experience/ Internship (408/608) but other courses can also be approved.

f you do not need any academic credit, you can also do have a non-credit experience but you still must register with the Education Abroad office. Getting academic credit does open up scholarship opportunities! Non-credit options are usually not scholarship eligible.

GRIP students gain credit in the following ways:

Enroll in credit through your academic department: Students should speak to their academic advisor about obtaining credit directly from their department for a fieldwork experience abroad. Your department will determine which credit is appropriate and how it will count toward your graduation requirements. A faculty member in your department will supervise and grade your credits.

Enroll in credit through the sponsoring organization and transfer it to NAU: Some opportunities offer academic credit as part of the program fees. You will still need to gain pre-approval through your academic department to transfer these credits and have them count toward your graduation requirements. Pricing for these units may be more or less than NAU tuition depending on the organization, the term you decide to go abroad, and what NAU scholarships or tuition waiver you might have.



FINANCIAL AID AND SCHOLARSHIPS:

Financial Aid
Students getting academic credit for fieldwork are eligible for financial aid and Education Abroadscholarships. As with any study abroad experience, be sure to start planning and saving early to secure all necessary funding.

Depending on the term abroad, some NAU scholarships may or may not applied. If getting credit during the fall or spring semester as a full-time student (either a full 12.00-15.00 credit internship or combination of internship and online classes), tuition waivers (Lumberjack, Dean's, President's, Blue, Gold, etc.) may be used. Tuition waivers cannot be used during the summer term.

Depending on the fieldwork experience, GRIP students can usually use FAFSA Financial Aid including Pell grants, loans, and scholarships. Some conditions apply, so be sure to discuss this with first your Education Abroad Advisor to get the basics, and then with the study abroad financial aid advisor to discuss your specific aid package. 

GRIP Scholarship
This scholarship is meant to offset the tuition costs for GRIP students. The amount awarded is based on the number of credits you are enrolled for the term of participation. The award will be automatically applied to your LOUIE account as long as you meet the following criteria:
  • Register your internship with CIE through the GRIP application
  • Be enrolled in NAU credits through CIE for your fieldwork experience (part of the GRIP application)
  • NOT be receiving an NAU tuition waiver during the term of participation (e.g. Merit scholarships such as Lumberjack, Dean's, President's, Blue, Gold, etc. used during fall/spring term; Merit Scholars are eligible for GRIP Scholarship in the summer term if enrolled in NAU credits)
  • $100 per credit hour

NAU Hooper Undergraduate Research Award​
The intent of the Hooper Undergraduate Research Award (HURA) is to encourage greater participation of undergraduate students from all disciplines in research, scholarly, and creative activities supervised by a faculty mentor. If you would like to submit a research proposal abroad, be sure to let your Education Abroad Advisor know you are applying for the HURA!

"The most fascinating parts of interning in Singapore was that I got a chance to live like a local. It was a fully emerging experience into the culture. After this experience, I know how capable I am to be on my own. I was proud that I did this, and I think everyone should have study/intern abroad experience at least once in life because you never what's actually out there unless you are there."

Biology Major, Chemistry Minor (Pre-Med)

“I could not have been more grateful to have completed my abroad volunteer program with CFHI at the Red Cross Memorial Pediatric Hospital in Cape Town, South Africa. I was able to build my knowledge base for clinical practices and sit in during all the meetings, lectures, surgeries and follow any local medical student around during their rotations. Living in a developing country eradicates the focus of consumerism and the individual. You begin to appreciate the human race as one body and find your role in this world.”

"I helped conduct one of the first fish surveys on South Caicos after Hurricane Irma and Maria. It was an incredible and unforgettable experience that was full of adventure. SFS is a great program for field research, and GRIP helped me every step of the way."

 

2Kali Swichtenberg

Bielefeld, Germany 
Microbiology and Chemistry Major, Studio Art

“I had the amazing opportunity to research in Bielefeld, Germany for three months through the DAAD RISE program. While I was there, I was able to learn and practice applicable laboratory techniques and be professionally mentored by a PhD student. I was also immersed in the German culture and participated in both day-to-day activities and special summer festivities throughout Germany. I also had the opportunity to travel to the Czech Republic, Belgium, and various German cities. Overall, this experience was highly valuable to me academically, professionally and personally.”


FIELDWORK TYPES AND PROGRAMS

Most students find internships three different ways: independently sourced ("do-it-yourself"), a competitive opportunity, or through an internship provider program.

A "do-it-yourself" experience will be similar to searching for an opportunity in the U.S. You should engage your professional network both on- and off-campus for reputable organizations. Your professor, supervisor, professional acquaintances, friends, or family may have a connection to an opportunity. You may also contact the HR department of reputable organizations and inquire if they accept interns. Work with the Career Development office and also check the GoinGlobal county guides to tailor your resume to that particular organization and country, and you might even consider a mock interview with Career Development if they want to interview you. "Cold contacting" organizations that are not well-known or that you have no connection is not recommended for safety concerns. Search this way at your own risk.

A competitive opportunity might be a fully-funded experience in a specific field, but only a certain number of seats (and funding packages) are available, so prepare your application well in advance, taking advantage of relevant resources on campus including your departmental mentors, the University Writing Commons (and bring your other scholarship essays, too!), and the NAU National & International Scholarships and Fellowships office. There are many such opportunities listed with NISF, so be sure to check out the website!

Internship or fieldwork providers are organizations that assist with the placement process, from setting up interviews to arranging accommodation and 24/7 support and even hosting events and excursions. For these services, providers charge a "program fee." There are many providers out there, some reputable and some not! Before paying any application or program fee, meet with your Education Abroad Advisor to ensure it is a reputable program. Programs listed below are ones that NAU students have previously participated in and returned with success stories and are well-known as reputable programs in the field of international education.


Please note that it is the student's responsibility to ensure that an opportunity found with an organization listed on the GRIP Opportunity page or anywhere else meets the student's personal standards of safety and quality as well as their academic and professional goals. The opportunities listed are meant to be a resource for further research.
