Welcome Frances Weiner!


Frances is a Bobcat herself who traveled the abroad during her undergrad for her Spanish minor. Now, she is in her second year working at the study abroad office. Frances dove right into some of the values of an international internship: Learning a new language, working in a cross cultural setting, networking, and a resume boost!

With CIS abroad internships, you have a couple different options:

  • Short term program
  • Short or long term with flexible start dates. (Choose your date)
  • An entire semester abroad, and earn credits

Frances and her office help students wanting to study abroad figure out the logistics. Things such as placement, housing, credits, emergency support, Visa support, insurance and financial aid

Academic credits while interning:

  • Semester long with academic classes, intern and take class
  • Summer with classes in Scotland
  • Summer internships with language classes

On campus experiences:

  • IEP on campus- communications intern
  • Look for email for jobs that help promote the study abroad program!
  • Receive your Global Leadership certificate! It’s a 2 year program for any major, with opportunities to travel. Stop in the Office of education abroad for advising hours.

Keep in touch with Frances! Shoot her an email, to set up a meeting about studying or interning abroad!
