An information session about the Charles H. Salisbury Summer International Internship Stipend will take place Wednesday, Oct. 20. The summer 2010 recipients will provide brief presentations on their experiences and the applications process.
Created by gifts from Charles Salisbury Jr. ’63, P’94, L.H.D. ’08, this fund provides financial support of up to $15,000 each for three students interested in pursuing an international internship experience. By supplementing classroom education with internship experience, students gain a practical understanding of the demands and rewards of future careers. All rising sophomores and juniors enrolled at Hobart and William Smith Colleges are eligible to receive an award.
This year, the Salisbury Stipend made it possible for Daniel Organ ’11 to spend his summer learning the international real estate business in Brazil; Lisa Philippone ’11, worked on the Mansukh Organic farm in Rajasthan, India, where she worked during her semester abroad in 2009; and Ben Ahearn ’11 returned to Copenhagen, Denmark, to work at and learn from one of the most forward-thinking firms in the city, Force 4 Architects.
Previous recipients have used the opportunity to work and study in Vietnam, Ireland, Switzerland, Hong Kong, Paris, Namibia, Mexico, Bangladesh, Italy and Peru.
Light refreshments will be provided. The session will take place from noon to 2 p.m. in the Vandervort Room of the Scandling Campus Center. Please contact Career Services at x3514 or firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a seat.
