Category 2: International or Intercultural Volunteer or Internship

Candidates for the Global and Intercultural Engagement Honor can claim volunteer or unpaid* internship experience with a significant global or intercultural component of 10 to 24 hours for 10 points, 25 to 50 hours for 20 points and 51 hours or more for 30 points. Candidates are required to complete at least 20 of their points in this Category and, as in every Category, may not claim more than 50 toward the Honor. International Learning has compiled a list of volunteer and internship opportunities both locally and internationally as a starting point, but this list is in no way definitive.

If you have finished an internship with an organization abroad, we request you provide a certificate of completion or letter of reccomendation from behalf of your program supervisor.

*Experiences for which candidates received a grant or stipend are acceptable.
