1.) Application

Apply & Interview

Candidates for each Sage Corps program are reviewed on a first-come, first-served basis until all spots are filled — and spots are limited, so the earlier you apply, the better. Candidates with strong written applications will be invited to complete a video interview. Once you’re offered a spot in a Sage Corps program, you’ll be asked to sign a student agreement and pay a the program deposit fee.

Receive Academic Credit

We believe that experience is the new classroom and our programs prove it. We’ve taken the traditional study abroad model and flipped it to ensure our fellows are a step ahead both academically and professionally. Our academic partner and school of record, Trinity, offers our fellows the opportunity to earn academic credit while completing a global internship. The best news? We’re able to offer transferrable** credit at a fraction of the cost of most university tuitions.

2.) Pre-Departure

Online Curriculum

Before you leave, you’ll complete an online curriculum designed to prepare you for a comprehensive professional experience. The curriculum is personalized to each student, but may include courses such as: professional networking, industry workshops (sales, analytics, marketing, design etc.), self-assessment, and cultural preparations.

Startup Match

Once a student receives an offer and officially enrolls in the program, the Sage Corps team begins the process of matching that student with a startup. Using the student's resume and short cover letter, our team will connect with our startup partners that seem like a potential good fit. If the student and startup have a great conversation, the student will receive an offer from that startup.

3.) Go Abroad


Upon arrival in your program city, you’ll attend a two-day orientation designed to acquaint you with your new home and prepare you to make the most out of your internship. A sample orientation schedule might look something like this:

Explore & NEtwork

Each week, you’ll attend a professional event with your cohort and city manager. Events can range from panel discussions to company visits to pitch events. We also organize some cohort dinners and a cultural excursion. 

4.) Return


The best part about a Sage Corps program is that it never ends. You’ll return home with a tremendous advantage: unparalleled global experience that places you far ahead of your peers in the eyes of prospective employers. And as a member of the Sage Network, you’ll get to leverage a robust community of alums, mentors, and business leaders with connections to some of the world’s top companies and startup communities.
