Fellowships, Internships & Exchanges

Our Office of Fellowships, Internships & Exchanges (FIE) offers strategic support to Wesleyan students, faculty and staff seeking a global education. We supervise the application process for a wide range of international fellowships and we advise students and recent alumni interested in pursuing independent research or pre-professional opportunities through such opportunities. FIE collaborates with the Office of Study Abroad to develop international internship opportunities, in conjunction with Wesleyan's study abroad programs, and it oversees the academic credit-granting process for all internships taken for credit. The FIE provides strategic support to faculty interested in developing international exchanges that will enhance and enrich the global education that we offer our students.
