University of Wisconsin–Madison students preparing to embark on international internships for the summer and fall of 2016 were among those who gathered recently to hear words of encouragement and to receive scholarships to help pay their way.
These 26 undergraduates were recognized April 19, at the International Division Spring 2016 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, an 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.
