Apply for your internship abroad with Roots Interns

Winner- New Program Go Abroad
New program 2022 Go Abroad

Great to see you are interested in one of the internships that we published on Go Abroad. When it comes to finding an internship, the choice is often between an internship that will enhance your resume and one that you’re passionate about. We believe it can be both. At Roots, we offer academic internships with grassroots projects all over the world. You’ll be a large part of a small team doing something amazing.

Please note the following:

  • All internships are based on a volunteer work placement, which means you will not receive a stipend.
  • Fees apply. Once Roots has secured you a placement, you need to pay a fee depending on the duration of your stay, destination, and accommodation type. With each internship profile on our website you will find an overview of the fees in the section ‘dates and fees’. If you are on a tight budget, check our page with more information on fundraising for your internship.


If you’re ready to apply for an internship, here’s what to do:


Fill in the application form below which includes sharing your CV with us.


We’ll set up a call with you to go through your application.


If we feel it’s a good match, we’ll set up a call between you and the supervisor for this internship.


If everyone’s happy, we’ll provisionally confirm your placement! We’ll then send you  all the information you need.


We’ll then send you the invoice for the deposit. Only once we receive payment of the deposit your placement will be confirmed.
