Program Requirements

Since 2007, the US Government makes a distinction between an Intern Program and Trainee Program.

You can apply for an Intern Program, if you are a foreign national
  1. who is currently enrolled in and pursuing academic studies abroad,
  2. who has graduated from an overseas institution no more than 12 months prior to the start date of his or her exchange visitor program.
MAXIMUM INTERN PROGRAM DURATION: 12 months + 30 days Grace Period.
You can apply for a Trainee Program, if you are a foreign national
  1. who has a degree or professional certificate from a post-secondary academic institution abroad and at least one year of related work experience acquired outside the United States,
  2. has five years of related work experience acquired outside the United States.
MAXIMUM TRAINEE PROGRAM DURATION: 18 months + 30 days Grace Period.
Requirements for all participants
  • Academic field of study, major, qualification and work experience must correspond to the desired sphere of the Internship/Training.
  • English level must meet requirements to perform successfully in the proposed intern/training position.
  • Proof of sufficient financial funds for the period of the program is required. Internship/Training is meant to give foreign nationals professional experience and knowledge of US business practices. In certain fields, only unpaid positions are generally available. In such cases, the participant must provide adequate funds for the entire duration, at least $900 per month. Required funds decreases on the amount of your salary for paid positions.
For example:
Duration of the program: 6 months
Stipend per month: $500
The aggregate stipend: 6*$500=$3000
Required funds for the first month $1200
Required proof of funds for 2-6 months: 5*$1000=$5000
Participant’s required funds: $1200+5000-3000= $3200
