Padnos Global Award Seeks Applicants

Hobart and William students interested in a funded short-term abroad opportunity and who have an interest in pursuing a “green” internship or research experience are invited to apply for the Padnos Winter Break International Research/Internship Award.

Funded by gifts from the Padnos Family, the annual award supports one Hobart or William Smith student who is interested in an internship or research experience abroad. Applicants who intend to pursue a sustainability internship or research experience will be given preference.

Applications are due to the Salisbury Center for Career, Professional and Experiential Education by 4 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 4.

The $5,000 award covers lodging, round-trip airfare and a stipend. Academic credit will not be given for the internship. The award will be completed during winter break of the recipient’s sophomore, junior or senior year. The award gives recipients the chance to gain practical insights and a heightened understanding of the demands and rewards of future careers.

After returning to campus, the student must give a presentation summarizing his or her experience as part of an informational session for potential new applicants. The award recipient must also write a two-page paper summarizing the experience.

For questions or assistance during the application process, please email with your availability to schedule an appointment to meet with Salisbury Center Director Brandi Ferrara.

At HWS, global experiences are a point of distinction. As part of Princeton Review‘s “The Best 381 Colleges 2017,” Hobart and William Smith were ranked seventh in the nation for study abroad opportunities and global programming. Earlier this year, Hobart and William Smith were named 13th in the nation among the colleges with the most recipients of 2015-16 U.S. Fulbright Student Awards.

Countries that are under U.S. Department of the State warnings will be excluded. In case of international crises or disasters, other countries may be excluded at the discretion of HWS.
