University of Wisconsin–Madison students preparing to embark on international internships for the summer and fall of 2014 were among those who gathered recently to hear words of encouragement and to receive scholarships to help pay their way.
These 13 undergraduates were recognized April 17, at the Division of International Studies Spring 2014 Scholarship Award Ceremony, co-sponsored by the Division’s International Academic Programs and International Internship Program.
The International Internship Program (IIP) identifies, cultivates and promotes high-quality internship opportunities that advance the professional training of UW-Madison undergraduate students, foster global competency, and reinforce academic learning through practical application.
IIP also coordinates the Worldwide Internship Program, a three-credit online course for students in IIP-cultivated internships or for students who independently find their own internship overseas and want to earn credit related to their experience. The course guides students through issues related to globalization and helps them manage the challenges of working across cultures.
