WDI and its partners work together to define and develop unique and impactful projects for student internships. Students may work with for-profit partners, non-profit non-governmental organizations (NGOs), or entrepreneurial ventures. Internship projects are related to one of WDI’s sectors and services: Education, Energy, Finance, Healthcare, or Performance Measurement & Improvement.
Past internship projects included expansion strategies, new business development, organizational assessment and development, impact assessment, market research, microfinance, pricing, and developing a social media marketing strategy.
WDI Interns working on a WDI-Initiated internship project receive a $10,000 fellowship and up to $1500 airfare reimbursement for round-trip direct international flights between Detroit and the internship base city. On a case by case basis, WDI partner organizations may provide free in-country housing or other resources in addition to WDI’s fellowship and airfare.
Unless specifically noted, all internships are for 12 consecutive weeks.
