Are you interested in maximizing opportunities you have for learning and professional development during your time as an undergraduate at Middlebury?

We invite you to join us at an open information session about the curricular offerings and career opportunities available at the Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey (MIIS). This is your chance to engage with senior faculty, gain a deeper understanding of what MIIS provides as an institution, and learn about the development practice and policy program directly from the director.

You can find her complete bio here: http://www.miis.edu/academics/short/graduate-certificate-international-development/instructors

This is also a chance for you to find out about recently revamped accelerated degree offerings, where Middlebury alums can take advantage of guaranteed $10,000 legacy scholarships and accelerated entry that allows you to complete an MA in as little as 18 months.

Virtual Internship at the State Department

Check out this great program!

The Virtual Student Foreign Service (VSFS) is a nine-month, unpaid e-Internship. VSFS virtually connects U.S. citizen college students with agencies across the federal government and U.S. diplomatic posts overseas to engage in digital diplomacy.  Because these eInternships are virtual, students can have a flexible virtual work schedule during the academic year, allowing both academic and e-Internship goals to be met.

The State Department is looking to American college students to help the U.S. Government across every aspect of its unclassified efforts. VSFS e-Interns will increase the digital capacity of those federal agencies participating, whether technically, artistically or via increased communication. e-Interns will have the opportunity to connect with each other and work collaboratively with e-Interns across the country.

The Department of State and the Bureau of Information Resource Management’s Office of e-Diplomacy encourage college and graduate students from all majors and backgrounds to apply to the VSFS eInternship program.

Deadline to apply is July 26.  Application details herehttps://www.usajobs.gov/GetJob/ViewDetails/471416100
