INTERNSHIP LOCATIONS and what's new for summer 2013:

Keep in mind that internships are becoming increasingly competitive as all colleges/universities are encouraging their students to obtain these important and valuable hands-on experiences. The best advice we can give is: Keep up your grades and make sure you have lined up faculty members to write a good letter of recommendation. Apply early. Get help with cover letters and resumes from the Office of Career Services for professional appearance and content. Apply to as many as interest you. Do not limit your applications to specific geographic areas. Talk to other students about their internships. Talk with faculty. Do not wait until the last minute to apply.

They will conduct carefully selected projects focusing on ecological studies in the Cape Coast area such as the Kakum
National Forest, one of the few virgin forests in Africa. Weekly seminars and workshops, led by Ghanaian professors, will provide participants opportunities to learn beyond their disciplines. Field trips to cultural sites will take place during the weekends. Airfare, room and board will be provided. Participants will receive a stipend at the end of the program. Additional information and applications are available at Deadline for receiving applications is January 30 2009.
