Spend Winter Term Engaged in International Sustainable Development

The Andean Alliance for Sustainable Development has re-posted their winter term internship opportunity with a deadline of November 25th. 

Students, you may apply for Cross-cultural Community Service Grants funding through the Center for Community Engagement, which has a deadline of December 2nd.  CCE has generously offered to support AASD applications, but students will need to apply individually by the deadline, as there is not a pre-set amount of funding dedicated for AASD participants only as we have had in place for past j term cohorts.  It is the responsibility of the student to secure their own funding as needed, secure the position with AASD, apply for winter term credit, and to find a faculty sponsor by December 2.

This is a tall order, but if you happened to have seen the recent screening of The Potato King documentary last week, which included utterly beautiful footage of the Peruvian landscape where the Andean Alliance for Sustainable Development works, you might be motivated to get this done!  This virtual internship with them won’t be like a visit, but it will help you learn about the culture and resources of Peru.  The deadline for applications to do the internship is November 25.

Finding A Job During the COVID-19 Era Hosted by Society of International Development

INFORMATION SESSION:

Thursday, June 25th 2020, 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm EDT

The coronavirus pandemic has impacted the global economy in many ways, especially when it comes to the job market. Some organizations have had to downsize, close temporarily, or freeze hiring. As organizations adjust to this new way of operating, those entering the job market for the first time may wonder how this pandemic has affected the job market.

Join SID-Washington — in partnership with the Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey — for an interactive discussion on how the international development job market has changed in the past few months, receive practical tips for making your application stand out, and learn what skills are most important in this new virtual working world. In the lead-up to this event, we would like to hear from organizations about changes in their hiring processes due to COVID-19.

If you’re interested in joining this webinar, please register through Society for International Development’s external system: https://sidw.org/event-details/513 Registration for this event will close at 4:00 PM on Wednesday, June 24th. This event will be a webinar via Zoom, and the meeting details will be sent to RSVPs on June 24th.
