Summer Internships

Fletcher students completed a total of 172 internships in 52 different countries during the Summer of 2013. Students found their internship opportunities through a variety of sources including organizations invited by the OCS to recruit interns, Fletcher Career Central (OCS’ online job and internship search database) as well as through formal and informal networking opportunities. Fletcher's alumni continue to be an invaluable source and resource for internships. In addition to the students who did internships, 28 students spent their summer engaged in language studies and pursuing summer course work both at Fletcher and at other universities.
