Global Fellows Timeline and Funding

Timeline:

  • Mid-December - early February: Internship portfolio available and applications open
  • By February 28: In-person interviews and offers distributed
  • Second half of Spring Semester: Mandatory pre-departure course (1-credit)
  • ~June 1-August 15: 8 week in-country internships
  • Fall Semester: Mandatory post-internship course (1-credit)

Funding:

International travel and living expenses can be expensive. On the other hand, some countries are more affordable than living in the U.S., making some international experiences easier on the pocketbook.  Cost of living in the local currency, housing options (whether provided by host, or not), airfare, local transportation, and food, are all items to consider. 

Each fellow will receive an award, up to $5,000, to offset their internship-related expenses, including flight, visa expenses, and housing and food. Award amounts are determined by several factors including, but not limited to, number of weeks of internship, hours per week, location, budget and financial need.  

Global Fellows should budget wisely and be willing to financially contribute to their experience.
