Want to intern or study abroad this summer? Not sure how to pay for it? Come learn about opportunities to go abroad and ways to fund your experience at this joint SIT/Ie3 info session!
SIT/World Learning has $18,000 in funding available for UW students for the 2012-2013 academic year. SIT Study Abroad sponsors a special need-based scholarship for students from the UW who participate on SIT Study Abroad programs. Scholarship awards vary according to financial need and can range from $500-$5,000 for semester programs and from $300-$3,000 for summer programs.
IE3 partners with UW to make sure students who intern abroad have a safe experience while doing meaningful work and earning credits towards their degree. Come to the IE3 info session next Thursday to learn more about what kind of work is available, what regions they send students to, and most importantly – funding opportunities! The application deadline for 2012 summer internships is January 25th, so come to this info session for application tips and to get things started!
