Award-winning international internship program provider The Intern Group (TIG) has offered over US$20,000 in scholarships to its interns that are studying with the assistance of Pell Grants, offered through the US government’s Federal Student Aid program.
Each Pell Grant Recipient that is accepted into The Intern Group’s international internship program is awarded a scholarship that is discounted from their program fee. The scholarship program provides greater accessibility to international internship experiences to young people of all different backgrounds. The scholarship program also supports The Intern Group’s commitment to developing globally minded leaders around the world.
“Interning abroad would not have been possible without The Intern Group. Period,” said TIG scholarship winner Luis Sosa. Financial aid from The Intern Group allowed Sosa to pursue his goal of earning professional experience in Latin America.
“Until I learned of the possibility of interning abroad on a scholarship, the idea of doing it hadn't occurred to me. Interning anywhere can be complicated considering that as an intern a lot of times you don't receive any kind of financial assistance from institutions, which creates a financial burden you have to assume for the sake of gaining experience.”
As The Intern Group’s 2015’s scholarship winner, Sosa was able to earn professional experience in international business through an internship in Medellín, Colombia.
The Intern Group (TIG) is an award-winning provider of internship-abroad programs in London, New York, Madrid, Berlin, Dublin, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Melbourne, and Colombia. Internship programs are offered year-round to students and graduates of all ages, in all career fields and majors.
The United States government provides Pell Grants to students to alleviate the financial burden of university costs. Qualifying students must prove financial need to receive the Pell Grant. In 2014-2015, one-third of undergraduate students received a Pell Grant.
