IAESTE Intern in the U.S.

IAESTE (pronounced “eye-ess-tay”), or the International Association for the Exchange of Students for Technical Experiences, is a global organization promoting intercultural exchange between students in STEM fields across the globe. The Association was first established in 1948 and now has more than eighty official member countries that collaborate to host and send students abroad for technical internships each year. IAESTE students travel to host countries within the IAESTE network where they complete paid internships at companies, universities, and research organizations. The program was established in the United States in 1950 and is administered by Cultural Vistas, a nonprofit exchange organization which develops international professional experiences that empower people to drive positive change.
