Apply NOW! Deadline extended! Have you been to Israel and are looking to return for a summer of deeper engagement? Thanks to a generous donor, CCI is offering funding to three students to participate in a six to ten week internship through Onward Israel. Students interested in this opportunity must apply directly to Onward Israel, be accepted, and then contact Cheryl Whitney Lower at CCI. Awards of $1500 will be awarded to the first three students accepted to cover program fee and airfare.
Onward Israel’s purpose is to increase exponentially the number of Birthright and teen programs alumni who return to Israel for a transformative identity-building second visit, eventually reaching a stage where half of all first time visitors partake in a longer more immersive second experience. Prior participation in Birthright or other teen programs is recommended – but not required. The intended long-term outcome is a long-lasting connection with Israel and a strong commitment to Jewish life and community at the heart of the next generations.
Onward Israel will offer students mid-length Israel experiences (6-10 weeks), during the summer, speaking directly to the interests and concerns of the young adult population entering the labor force in a global world. Programs will be structured around resume-building opportunities such as internships, and will capitalize on Israel’s competitive advantages (start-up nation, technology, global interactions, cultural immersion, Jewish social capital) to provide high-quality experiences that will increase Israel’s market share for young people searching to advance themselves personally and professionally. Onward Israel also promotes opportunities for cross-cultural immersion, a feature that is highly prized by employers and academic institutions, and seeks to foster the awareness and interest of program participants regarding post-trip communal opportunities for activism, involvement and leadership.
Apply directly to Onward Israel for an internship at http://www.onwardisrael.com/. Applications will be accepted through May 14th, 2017.
If you are offered and accept this internship, please be aware that your funding for this position is provided by CCI, and therefore you will be required to complete funded internship paperwork, including a funding agreement, assumption of risk and code of conduct form, and evaluations.
Participation in this program will be contingent on a 2nd-level travel review by Middlebury’s Global Operations Committee.
Eligible students: first-years, sophomores, juniors. If you are offered and accept this internship, please be aware that your funding for this position is provided by CCI, and therefore you will be required to complete funded internship paperwork, including a funding agreement, assumption of risk and code of conduct form, evaluations during and after the internship, a donor thank you note, and submission of photos.

Middlebury College recently signed a collaborative agreement with HBX, Harvard Business School’s online digital education initiative, to make available the Credential of Readiness (CORe) business fundamentals program to current undergraduate students. Designed for liberal arts students, CORe is an interactive online program composed of three (non-credit-bearing) courses: Business Analytics, Economics for Managers, and Financial Accounting. Taught entirely online by Harvard Business School faculty, the program utilizes the school’s HBX platform. Middlebury students will not receive course credit for the CORe program; instead, students who successfully complete the program will receive a certificate of completion from HBX.
Our agreement with HBX reserves places in each CORe cohort and—importantly—guarantees need-based financial aid from HBX for students currently receiving financial aid at Middlebury. An anonymous Middlebury donor has provided additional funding for qualified students’ unmet need. We are delighted to be able to expand access to this program to all of our students.
If you are interested in the program and want to learn more, attend the information session, visit the HBX website, or schedule an appointment with Ursula Olender, director of career advising in the Center for Careers and Internships.
