I just received the following e-mail and wanted to pass alongthe information about Northwestern's Global Engagement Summer Institute. UIUC students may apply. I don't know if it is open to other university students as well.
"Dear select Illinois faculty, staff, and student leaders:
"The Northwestern University Center for Global Engagement is excited to announce that applications are now available for the Global Engagement Summer Institute, a unique summer program in Bolivia, Nicaragua, India, and Uganda. The program involves a 7-day preparatory institute in Chicago, followed by an 8-week, team-based internship at a host nonprofit.
"This is a great opportunity that pairs rigorous academic training with hands-on international community development experience. Do you think this might interest your students?
"Please feel free to forward the following message (below) to appropriate listservs and students and feel free to contact me with any questions. We'd also be thrilled for any personal recommendations you may have for students who would be good candidates for our program!
"Many thanks in advance.
