The Tauck Scholars Program provides unique educational & cultural opportunities for selected business students to participate in an international summer internship in a cultural setting that is “new and foreign to them." Recipients of this award may select the type of international internship program they wish to pursue based on interest; qualifications & career goals. This may be a Lehigh-led internship program; an international internship program organized through a Lehigh-approved program provider; an international internship organized directly with an international company or you can customize your own experience. Tauck Scholars will also serve as goodwill ambassadors to Lehigh University, by helping prospective scholars prepare for their internships, and take part in special College of Business and Economics’ activities.
