MIT International Science and Technology Initiatives (MISTI) connects MIT students and faculty with research and innovation around the world. Working closely with a network of premier corporations, universities, and research institutes, MISTI matches hundreds of MIT students annually with all-expense-paid internships, teaching, and research opportunities abroad. Program Managers prepare students for their experiences abroad through MIT courses in the language and culture of the host country. MISTI is open to undergraduates, graduate students, and recent graduates.
Currently MISTI is offered in Belgium, Brazil, Chile, China, France, Germany, India, Israel, Italy, Japan, Korea, Mexico, Netherlands, Portugal, Russia, Singapore, South Africa, Spain, Switzerland, and Uganda.
