Summer Internship Projects Posted
The WDI Global Impact Internship Program has posted its internship opportunities for summer 2012 for work with the Institute’s partner organizations. The deadline to apply is Feb. 3.
Open to U-M graduate students, the internship program pairs students with businesses and organizations doing work in emerging market economies. The internships typically relate to WDI’s Base of the Pyramid and Healthcare research initiatives.
Some of the partners working with WDI this summer include the Clinton Health Access Initiative, GE Healthcare, Grassroots Business Fund, PATH, PharmaSecure, VillageReach, and Druk Holdings & Investments. Some of the countries where the 12-week, paid internships will take place include Rwanda, Uganda, India, Bhutan, Tanzania, Indonesia, Ghana, Mexico, and Mozambique.
Last summer, 21 WDI interns from the Ross School of Business, the Ford School of Public Policy, the School of Public Health, the School of Natural Resources and Environment, the College of Engineering, and the Medical School worked in 10 countries for both nonprofits and for-profit businesses.
