GRIP was created for NAU students who want to receive academic credit for a hands-on experience abroad in their field of study. Participating in an internship or research project abroad will help you gain academic credit toward your degree, a better understanding of your field of study, and an outstanding resume.
 

Internship/Fieldwork Search Strategies

 There are several ways students secure internships: While students often find an internship or research opportunity independently, international internship advising is also available with the Education Abroad Office if you need help finding or evaluating a fieldwork experience that fits your academic, professional, and personal goals.
