The Center for Cultural Exchange & Education operates the program by publishing the DS-2019 directly with the approval of the U.S. government and SEVIS. The rapid growth of overseas internships allows many companies to leverage international internship programs to provide new perspectives and cultural insights for their companies and to create a path for international business. Our goal is to provide a rewarding internship program for both participating students and host companies.
