Unlike traditional study abroad programs, we believe experience is the new classroom. Sage Corps sends university students and postgrads to intern abroad at startup companies. Yes, our Fellows can get paid, and outside the office, students live like locals - young professionals, not students - and attend weekly professional and social events. All majors are welcome to apply, and we offer academic credit.

When they return home, as alumni, our Fellows join an elite community of like-minded young professionals who accept full time positions at some of the world’s top companies.


“Having worked abroad, you’re among a select few that understand business in other markets and how to work across cultures. This is ever more important in today’s workforce.”

“When I got back from Argentina and was applying for full time jobs in consulting this past fall, I stood out. The people I was competing with for the jobs had other summer internships too, but working for a startup abroad was super interesting to everyone that I interviewed with.”

“The lifelong connections I have built, the travel adventures, the professional skills I have learned…the Sage Corps experience has had a profound impact on my life.”
