Grinnell-in-London currently offers up to fifteen slots for internships, up to three in the British parliament and up to twelve at-large. Because the number of students in our program who can serve as interns is regulated by the UK Border Agency, selection of students for internship slots is usually competitive. Selection is based on students' academic records, the viability of matching a student's interests with the kinds of internships available in London, and the suitability of a student's background for a proposed internship.
