What is Panrimo?
Panrimo is a third-party provider that arranges study abroad programs for students. EIU has a partnership with Panrimo which means EIU students can participate in a Panrimo study abroad program and earn EIU credit. With each Panrimo program, EIU students will pay their study abroad program fees directly to Panrimo. Your EIU student account will only be charged for the $300 EIU study abroad administrative fee; however, Panrimo will reimburse you for this fee. You will not pay EIU tuition or regular fees for the term(s) you are studying abroad.
Panrimo offers internship programs in Argentina, China, the Czech Republic, England, and Italy. When you participate in a Panrimo internship, you take other study abroad coursework alongside a 10-15 hour/week internship. Students of all majors can apply for Panrimo internships as Panrimo personalizes each internship to match as closely as possible with each student's goals. For detailed information about program offerings, courses, dates, and fees for each program, go to Panrimo's web site.
Panrimo’s Mission: To offer customized options for all to study and intern abroad in order to create positive global interdependence and understanding.
All Panrimo internship programs include the following:
1. Internship placement catered to student's needs
Besides this, all Panrimo fees are optional and customizable depending on each student's request. For an internship, students pay an internship placement fee, the cost of which varies based on location and duration. Panrimo can provide housing, airport reception, excursions, and cell phone, but these are not required expenses.
