This summer, the Weissman International Internship Program will send a record 50 students abroad as interns, working in 25 countries across the globe. The interns will engage in a wide range of private and public sector opportunities, including ventures in art and architecture, business, environmental sustainability, foreign policy, human rights, international development, journalism, public health, science, and technology.
The Weissman International Internship Program, established by Paul ’52 and Harriet Weissman in 1994, provides returning undergraduate students with the opportunity to intern abroad in a field related to their career and academic goals. The program enables students to develop a richer understanding of the global community in which they live and work, and provides an opportunity for them to share their experiences with the Harvard community when they return. Since the program’s inception, more than 350 students have interned in 76 different countries on six continents.
The Weissman Program, administered by the Office of Career Services, holds informational meetings for interested students in the fall and accepts applications through early February. For more information about the program, visit:http://www.ocs.fas.harvard.edu/students/global/weissman/weissman.htm.
