International Internship Program

The INU Internship Programme offers short-term international mobility and experiential learning at participating INU member institutions.

The Universitat Rovira i Virgili is currently offering an international internship in Spain. Apply online by January 31st. There is some financial support listed in the internship job description on the application page, but for further conversations about potential avenues for support, JMU students selected for this opportunity may talk with JMU Study Abroad.

Researcher Mobility Program

JMU doctoral students are invited to apply for the Researcher Mobility Program, an initiative designed to encourage the development of international research collaborations between members of the International Network of Universities (INU).

The Researcher Mobility Program offers faculty researchers and PhD students (or equivalent) the opportunity to establish an international research collaboration with another INU member university.  The purpose of this program is to develop joint research initiatives between INU member universities and to share expertise between research centres.  Visits should be for 2-4 weeks and should form the basis for future collaboration between the two research centres.

There are 5 awards of up to $2,000 each year, which contributes towards travel and living costs to facilitate the visit.  The deadline to apply is March 21, 2023. Any JMU recipients of this award may also visit the CGE Global Initiative Grants page to apply for potential further JMU support if needed.

International Student Conference on Global Citizenship

Organized annually in Indonesia by Universitas Katolik Parahyangan (Parahyangan Catholic University, "UNPAR"), a JMU partner institution and member of the INU, the International Student Conference brings together students from around the world for a global cross-cultural experience.

The January 2023 conference theme was: Inclusivity and Accessibility to Welfare and Sustainable Living After the Pandemic. Three students and one instructional faculty member from JMU participated in the conference. Opportunities to apply for the 2024 conference will be be announced by CGE in early fall semester 2023.

Student Seminar for Global Citizenship and Peace

The INU Student Seminar is an annual global student immersion program offered at Hiroshima University in Japan. The seminar is structured around the August 6 commemoration of the atomic bombing of Hiroshima. The 2022 seminar was held August 3-12 with the theme "The Age of Artificial Intelligence: Opportunities and Concerns." As an INU member, JMU sent two students and one faculty member to participate in the conference. In spring 2023 we will announce the next seminar theme, dates (early August), and application processes for JMU students and faculty.

Henry Fong Award

The Henry Fong Award is based on a competitive process available to students who attended the INU Student Seminar for Global Citizenship and Peace in Hiroshima, Japan. The 2022 award winner was a student from JMU!
