NEW Women's and Genders Studies and Global Health Initiative Collaborative Internships

This fall, the Women's and Gender Studies Program and the Global Health Initiative are excited to announce two new internship opportunities for students in India and Guatemala for winter term 2013! Internships will focus on projects which illuminate the linkages between health, education, gender and human rights.

The Guatemala internship opportunity is a partnership with the Highland Support Project (HSP) and Asociación de Mujeres del Altiplano (A.M.A.). HSP promotes ongoing and lasting transformational development of Maya communities in the Western Highlands of Guatemala. Transformational development is a practice based on the idea that poverty is a process that can only be addressed through changing social, economic, political, and cultural systems. The internship descriptions below offer several project options for the selected student. Please tailor your application to reflect the project(s) you are most interested in.
