Why choose internships with The Ohio Program?



  • At TOP you will find staff dedicated to your success. We work hard selecting hosting companies that are industry leaders but also we match the best participants to ensure mutual satisfaction.

  • TOP will carefully match your application with a company that will meet your skills and interest.

  • TOP staff will work with you as an individual, communicating with you often, via Skype and phone; we will answer all your questions BEFORE you need to pay any fees. This will allow you to make a comfortable, educated decision about your internship participation.

  • TOP responds to over 95% of emails and phone calls within 24 hours or less. TOP staff is always available via phone in case of emergencies, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

  • We pride ourselves with excellent diversity of participants, working with 50+ countries. Young people join J-1 programs to also improve their English language – but later find themselves placed with many of their own countrymen. This is not the case with OSU TOP! We strive to provide a real international experience to our participants.

  • Affordability – compared to similar programs you will find TOP very affordable.
