Internship Placement Program
IPP can help connect you to internship opportunties!
Explore careers, gain professional experience, skills, and expand your network in Charlottesville during the academic year or summer! Over 300 internship placements are available each year.
For over 40 years, UVA has connected students with quality professional internships with public sector and private industry organizations in Charlottesville as an important part of its public service mission. The UVA Internship Placement Program continues this tradition offering you a customized placement with a pre-qualified internship matched to your career field of interest for the summer, semester, or academic year.
The Internship Placement Program team will match you based on the best opportunities for your interests, skills, and goals. We will help you develop your skills and knowledge through a Professional Development Workshop and provide ongoing support in all aspects of your internship experience. Program internships can be paid or unpaid and may be pursued for credit. All internship sites are pre-qualified to meet UVA standards and guidelines established for internships by the Department of Labor Fair Labor Standards Act.
While internship placement cannot be guaranteed, one application provides you with consideration for multiple opportunities, professional skill development through the application process, and review for all sessions.
