Considering a summer study away program? Join advisers in the Global Education Office to learn about your program options - which are many! - and what funding opportunities exist. Please remember there is no credit awarded for summer courses, and therefore no aid transfer. But students can apply for an Amherst Summer Study Abroad Fellowship, a national fellowship (e.g., Gilman, Boren) or for aid directly from the program. Learn about these options and hear directly from students who've studied abroad in the summer!
Our aim is to provide attendees with a sneak peek into what USFQ study abroad opportunities can provide such as: field work, research opportunities, postgraduate experience, and much more. Our faculty and staff will be leading the info sessions and we will be able to answer any questions you might have.
An informational interview is a conversation with a professional in an industry, field, company, or position that interests you and that you would like to learn more about. It’s a valuable opportunity to conduct personalized research with someone whose experience and perspective you think you can learn from.
In this workshop, students will learn how to respectfully reach out to people you’d like to speak with, prepare for the conversation, maintain the relationship, activate your Amherst community through the Alumni Directory, and more.
While this workshop builds off of Part 1 from Fall 2020, anyone may attend regardless of participation last semester.
*This workshop will fulfill the Internship Preparation Workshop requirement for the Charles Hamilton Houston Internship Program*
