CIEE Summer Global Internship Program
in Prague, Czech Republic
CIEE Global Interns will find in Prague access to a wide range of opportunities to gain hands-on work experience and build their professional networks. Possibilities include working on digital database material preparation at Film Studios Barrandov, fact-checking at Radio Free Europe, publishing at Transitions Online, and more. As a Global Intern, you’ll spend the summer working at a non-paying position with a leading organization, diving into a field of interest, exploring a different culture, and expanding your professional portfolio and network. Prague, home to 1.2 million and some of Europe’s most dazzling architecture offers a rich cultural life, featuring festivals, concerts, and cultural programs, many of which are accessible on a student budget.
