About the Program
ACTFL is committed to growing the pipeline for language professionals and scholars. Each Spring, ACTFL invites applications for its Summer Internship and Scholars Program. This program gives young professionals hands-on skills and opportunities to pursue their research in a supportive, enriching setting.
Interns work with ACTFL staff on special projects in various ACTFL departments, and enhance their resume while they learn valuable new skills

- Explore the field
- Develop professional & academic skills
- Accumulate experiences that will serve as the foundation for future leadership roles
