Approved Virtual Internship Provider: CEA

To aid students in identifying virtual internship opportunities the Center for Global and Career Education has partnered with CEA.  Earlham students are able to utilize their EPIC Advantage funding to cover the program and application fees for these 6-week experiences. You may also opt for a Virtual Design & Innovation Lab in the summer.

Application Process

  1. Submit an application directly to CEA.
  2. CEA will verify that you are eligible for EPIC Advantage funding.
  3. You will complete three interviews:
    1. A screening interview with your Internship Coach
    2. A job placement interview with your on-site internship coordinator
    3. A final interview with your host supervisor

Funding Process

Once your internship placement has been confirmed you will need to submit your application for EPIC Advantage funding.

  • Make sure to indicate, in your application, that you utilized CEA’s services to secure your internship.  This will ensure that Earlham will pay the program and application fees on your behalf.

Note: If you withdraw from the program after the withdrawal date you will be responsible for reimbursing the College for the confirmation deposit that was paid on your behalf.


CEA’s virtual internship program includes an online academic seminar and a virtual internship placement. Your internship work schedule may vary depending on industry standards for your career field, time difference, and will be determined prior to your start date. The virtual internship includes an online seminar that you’ll complete independently and through virtual check-ins for a total of 22 contact hours and 120 hours at your virtual internship placement over 6 weeks. Together, your online seminar and virtual internship placement are worth 3 credits.
