We believe experience is the new classroom. And with our network of global entrepreneurs, we offer students a unique opportunity to prepare themselves for tomorrow’s global workforce. Unlike many other programs that focus exclusively on cultural experience or soft skills, we are also laser-focused on our students’ employability. To do that, we train students with in-demand hard skills through our online portal before we send them to intern abroad at global startups. It works — 86% of our alumni have full-time jobs within three months of graduation from college.
Unlike many other college internships, our students do impactful work alongside company leaders – they tackle real problems and build real solutions. We offer both virtual and in-person programs, and our individualized internships are eligible for students to receive a stipend to help offset program fees.
Sage Corps works with different types of university partners, ranging from large public universities to smaller private colleges. Our programs are designed flexibly to work alongside different types of academic programs based on our partners’ needs. Sage Corps is accredited by our school of record, Trinity, which offers tag-along courses and a transcript that students can transfer back to their home university.
1. APPROVED SUMMER PROGRAM PARTNERS
Students apply through their home university and, separately, to our program. Students may use scholarships, grants, or financial aid, while earning academic credit in our international internship program.
2. PARTNERS THAT EMBED OUR INTERNSHIP PROGRAM INTO A SEMESTER COURSE
Sage Corps sources and connects students with part-time microinternhips (team projects) or individual internships at a global startup to comprise the field experience portion of a course taught by the home university. These customized programs may also include faculty-led work on-site with our global startup partners worldwide.
3. GRANT FUNDING PARTNERS
Students are eligible to receive grants from approved university programs to cover Sage Corps program fees.
