Remote Global Internships (Early Fall Start)

CHID is offering an Early Fall Start Remote Global Internship opportunity for ALL UW STUDENTS called Widening Circles. Our host organization, Omprakash, has been an ongoing partner with UW Study Abroad and has been offering web-based learning, mentorship, and internship experiences for students long before our collective move to online learning.

Through participating in the Widening Circles program, students will get:

  • 5 credits
  • 1:1 Mentorship
  • Choice of interning remotely with 170+ NGO’s in 48 different countries working on a wide range of issues from education to healthcare to LGBTQ rights to digital storytelling and much more. There is truly something for everyone!
  • Course materials focused on the politics of “help”, the COVID-19 pandemic, and our related crises of health, inequality, and injustice.
  • A global experience right from their homes.

Info sessions for students and advisors will be held on August 5 at 12 pm and August 6th at 5 pm via Zoom: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/84747009284.

To register, students to sign up here (at the bottom of the page): https://www.omprakash.org/joinedge/chid-circles

Because this will administered through the Study Abroad Office, registration through the link will allow the Study Abroad Office to register students on their behalf, akin to a study abroad program. Program fees will be kept below $1000 (a great deal on 5 credits!) and will be finalized in the coming weeks. Interested students should register to stay apprised of program announcements.
