2 min read

Program enables students to explore world, career goals

The Weissman International Internship Program, established by Paul (’52) and Harriet Weissman in 1994, provides sophomores and juniors with the opportunity to intern abroad in a field of work related to their career and academic goals. The Weissman 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. This year’s 39 interns will join the 292 Weissman program alumni who have completed a work experience abroad since the program’s inception.

The 2007 Weissman interns will work in a wide range of private and public sector organizations in business, education, the environment, government, health and medicine, law, media, public service, science, and urban planning. Two of the 22 countries that the interns will visit this year are new destinations for the program: Bulgaria and Jamaica.
