The IC Global Wolverines is a program for undergraduate students who are interested in doing an internship or service project abroad during the summer. The aim of the program is to prepare students for their international experience through workshops that take place over the course of the Winter semester.

Benefits of the program:
  • International Health Insurance (Paid for by the International Center)
  • Professional assistance identifying international opportunities
  • Leadership opportunities 
  • Eligibility for U-M Funding 
  • Preferential hiring at U-M international Center 
  • Opportunity to take the Intercultural Development Inventory assessment
  • Digital Badge
  • ...and more!
**Please note, students are not guaranteed an internship or service placement through this program. The IC Global Wolverines administration works hard to identify suitable programs for each student, but does not do placements and cannot guarantee placements.** 

Time Commitment:

Winter Semester: The cohort will meet on Wednesday evenings, once a month, to cover important pre-departure topics. ICGW students will also be expected to take the Intercultural Development Inventory (IDI) pre-test during the Winter term. Prior to committing to ICGW, please be sure you are able to attend the ICGW sessions, which will be listed here prior to the ICGW application deadline.

Summer: Participants who've completed the requirements of the program and have received their GeoBlue International Health Insurance, will be expected to blog at least three times over the summer.

Returning Fall Semester: Returnees will be expected to attend the returnee/reflection session and will present a short presentation about their international experiences.  Fall sessions will be scheduled in late summer/early Fall 2019. Returnees will also be expected to take the IDI post-test during the Fall term.                                                     


Restricted to U-M Ann Arbor undergraduate students only. Participants should be returning to U-M for at least one semester after their summer abroad and should be available to attend the Wednesday evening Winter term workshops, as listed above in the "Time Commitment" section.  


No cost. Successful participation in the program will result in the International Center purchasing participant's international health insurance.

Passport and Visa

International Center staff will assist participants in navigating obtaining a passport and visa, if necessary.

Dates & Deadlines

Because IC Global Wolverines enables you to select your own internship, the dates you are abroad will depend on the internship secured. Post-internship/project activities occur in the Fall semester after return.
