Apply & Interview
After applying on our website - select candidates will be invited to complete a one-way video interview. We’ll then offer select candidates a spot in a Sage Corps program, and you’ll be asked to sign a student agreement and pay the initial program fee. We also offer scholarships and access to other financial resources.
Receive Academic Credit
Through our academic partner, Trinity, we offer our fellows the opportunity to earn academic credit while completing a global internship. Learn more here.
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 online modules such as: professional networking, industry workshops (sales, analytics, marketing, design etc.), self-assessment, and cultural preparations.
Once a student officially enrolls in the program and completes the online modules, the Sage Corps team begins the startup placement process. Students will complete a final interview with a pre-vetted startup CEO. Once the startup confirms that it will host the student, we have the startup sign a contract with us to formalize the match.
3.) Go Abroad
Upon arrival in your program city, you’ll attend a two-day orientation designed to acquaint you with your new city and prepare you to make the most out of your internship. A sample orientation schedule might look something like this:
