NEW Interim Program: Oslo Internship & Reflection Seminar

NORW 296 is St. Olaf’s first international internship and reflection seminar. This program uniquely transitions from a typical study abroad experience to an (unpaid) internship at a humanitarian, religious, or non-profit organization in Oslo, Norway. Students will live in shared apartments of 4-6 people in Oslo, and will spend Mondays through Thursdays at their respective internships before meeting for class on Fridays.

Norway Innovation Scholars Program

The Norway Innovation Scholars Program offers an opportunity for selected St. Olaf’s science and business students to complete research projects submitted by a biotech company. Four St. Olaf students are selected to participate in this experience modeled after the Mayo Innovation Scholars. The Norway Innovation Scholars will have the unique opportunity of spending four weeks in Norway performing market analysis, evaluating intellectual property issues, and creating a strategic plan.

American Scandinavian Foundation

The ASF Internships & Training Program gives American college students and recent graduates the chance to gain insight into the cultures and peoples of Scandinavia by undertaking an internship in the Nordic countries.

Internships in U.S. Embassies

If you are interested in gaining experience in U.S. foreign policy, diplomacy, and federal employment, consider the U.S. Department of State Student Internship Program. This is an unpaid internship that gives students the opportunity to work in U.S. embassies and consulates throughout the world, doing such tasks as participating in meetings with senior-level government officials, drafting and editing communications used by policymakers, and engaging directly with audiences to explain the work of the Department of State to promote U.S. foreign policy at home and abroad.
