Internship FAQs

Are virtual interns from all U.S. states eligible?

Only interns based in states where WVI is registered as an employer are eligible. These states include: Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, District of Colombia (Washington D.C.), Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Maryland, Minnesota, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Texas, Virginia, and Washington.

Is this a paid internship?

Interns receive a stipend amount of $650 per month, which is not an hourly wage, nor wages paid for services provided by the intern. A stipend is intended to cover expenses related to the internship programme. 

Will I receive electronic equipment from World Vision to participate in the virtual internship programme?

World Vision International is not able to provide equipment at the moment. Interns will be asked to use their own electronic devices.  

However, to ensure the security of WVI information, IT requires installing endpoint security software like Sentinel One and Zscaler on an intern's personal computer for the duration of the program. 

As a virtual intern, will I be required to go to the office at any point?

No. These internships are tailored to be performed digitally and remotely. 

Can I apply to more than one position?

Yes, you can apply up to three positions. This must be stated in your cover letter when applying.

What would my working schedule be?

Interns set their schedules in conjunction with their supervisor and team’s requirements. 

Summer cohorts range between 24-40 hours/week; Spring cohorts between 20-40 hours/week. 

Do you provide housing assistance for World Vision International Interns?

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, all our current U.S. internship opportunities are remote. Interns will not be required to move to a World Vision office location. 

Can I receive school credit?

Yes, if you would like to receive credit, an MOU between your university and World Vision must be signed.  

What career opportunities are available after the WVI internship programme?

While there is no guarantee of full-time employment with World Vision post WVI Internship Programme experience, interns are welcome to apply to any open positions that suit their profile at World Vision International.
