This is an excellent opportunity for graduating seniors with interest and/or experience in education and prior experience abroad. It is open to UO graduates who are US citizens or permanent residents, usually within 18 months of graduation, with a demonstrated knowledge of Italian (not just majors or minors).
Each year for the past several years we have sent 3 or 4 students on this internship. Many sign up for a second year, and you can contact current or former program participants to hear about their experience. The Department of Romance Languages does not administer the program, but the Italian sector is required to rank the applicants on the basis of several factors (including language ability, teaching experience, maturity and professionalism). Italian faculty offer information and advice on the application process and the program itself.
