The Center for Asian Studies (CAS) is excited to announce the new Asia Internship Program - Japan (AIP-Japan). AIP-Japan will provide opportunities for selected CU students to spend 4-6 weeks working for companies in Japan each summer. We have partnered with CU alumni and other friends of CU to create positions with both Japanese and multi-national companies with a presence in Japan. These internships will allow CU students from various backgrounds to apply their knowledge of Japan in a professional setting.


What you need to know:

Students selected for the internships will be eligible to receive upper-division credit in Asian Studies. Pending availability of funding, scholarship support will be offered to students to offset travel and living costs while in Japan. Otherwise, expenses such as airfare, lodging, meals, and local transportation will need to be covered directly by interns. Interns will live in dormitories and will have access to 24-hour emergency support and a health and safety orientation upon arrival in Japan. 

Details about the companies, job duties, and qualifications will be provided in early January. Application materials will include a cover letter, resume, transcript, and application form, and the deadline will be in early February. Please check the AIP-Japan website in January or contact CAS Executive Director Danielle Rocheleau Salaz ( with questions.



This will be a great opportunity to spend the summer preparing yourself for a global career. Don’t let it pass you by!
