Frequently Asked Questions

What’s included in the program cost? The total cost for the program is $4995 for 6-weeks abroad. This includes internship placement, athletics program, housing, in-country transportation, some meals and cultural activities. International flight, insurance, and other personal expenses are not included. You will not find another study or intern abroad program for this value that also includes a full customized athletic program.

 

Do I need a visa? No. The program is 6-weeks (approximately 42 days) and Americans can enter the European Union on a 90-day Tourist Visa. So you are in the clear for your internship PLUS if you want to do any independent travel before or after GProTEAM.


Are the internships in English? Yes. All internships are conducted in English. You will be working in an international environment though so keep your ears open for new languages and dialects! 


Are internships paid? No. Internships are not paid. This is to avoid any NCAA Compliance complications and visa issues in the country. These are volunteer work experiences. 


What kind ‘business projects’ will we be working on? Whether you are a Kinesiology or Finance major there is a place for you to contribute on a global scale. Once you have your ‘Huddle’ call and your application is reviewed, you will be placed on small teams with other athletes that compliment your skillset. If you are a Marketing major you might work with an Accounting or Finance major on a SWAT analysis for a new start-up. If you are a Physical Therapy major you might pair up with others in Fitness Training or Health and work on a Wellness Plan for an international gym. The goal - to make an impact.


What if I want to start earlier or extend my internship? Your housing is included in your program cost for the dates specified on our website. However, you can seek your own housing before or after if you want to extend your trip. We always encourage participants to travel while abroad so you can do that during free weekends or before/after the program dates.


What are the funding options available to me? We encourage you to do your due diligence both at your Home Institution (Financial Aid and Scholarship offices) and through a quick internet search to locate funding for your internship abroad. And remember, this is an investment in your future that will pay dividends down the road.


What if I am applying by myself? Can I still be selected? Yes you can still be selected. All ‘Huddles’ are conducted with no less than 4 applicants so you will receive an invitation to join other solo applicants during an ‘open’ Huddle date/time.
