International Internship Fund & Opportunities
Purpose of the Program
The International Internship Fund’s purpose is to support and encourage opportunities for Pacific McGeorge students and recent alumni to undertake international internships abroad or to volunteer with non-governmental organizations engaged in international or transnational activities. The Fund provides tuition discounts for students who intern for Pacific McGeorge credit and modest stipends for students and recent graduates who intern as volunteers.
Recipients will be chosen on a competitive basis by a selection committee based on the criteria and requirements described below. Recipients will be asked to participate in the Intercultural Legal Competence Seminar, which includes journal entries and a four-hour workshop. The maximum amount awarded to a student is $2,500, and the maximum for a recent graduate is $5,000. Funds are limited and may be exhausted, so early applications are encouraged.
