MISTI Summer 2021

Based on recent MIT Travel policy updates and restrictions in various countries, the only in-person MISTI internships currently planned for this summer are for students already accepted into the MIT-Korea program. As travel to additional MISTI countries becomes possible, program managers will reach out to applicants directly.Don’t forget, there are still remote internships available, but deadlines are approaching fast. Check out all of the MISTI offerings in Handshake.


MISTI for International Students

MISTI is now offering to set up local internships in companies and labs for international students already residing abroad in some MISTI countries. The availability of internships will depend on the public health and economic situation in each country as well as the discipline. The opportunity is open to all MIT students: undergraduate and graduate, including PhD and MBA students and those that will graduate this year. If you are interested in applying to MISTI for an internship abroad in your home country, please contact the relevant program manager.
