Fall 2018 Remote Internship Will Be Posted This Summer So Keep a Lookout!


The Tulane Remote Internship Program (T.R.I.P.) allows undergraduate students an opportunity to work for national companies while in New Orleans throughout the fall and spring academic semesters. In addition to working 6-10 hours a week for their employers, Tulane pays for the selected interns to visit their employers' respective cities and offices to meet with their teams, supervisors, and get a feel for the physical culture of the company. The purpose of this program is to allow students to get further exposure into industries they are interested in, as well as make themselves more competitive for summer internships through adding on work experience during their academic semesters. The Tulane Remote Internship Program also provides employers a unique and creative opportunity to work with Tulane undergraduates.
