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.

The Environment & Sustainability Student Trek experience is open to all sophomores, juniors, and seniors. It will include 10 students competitively selected through the application process described below, with strong preference given to students who receive financial aid as per the request of the donor. Students will travel to San Francisco as a group, departing from Burlington on Sunday, February 2nd, and returning on Saturday, February 8th, accompanied by a CCI advisor. To help ensure that there is no barrier to participation, all travel, lodging, meals, and related expenses will be paid.
This immersive “living and learning” experience will be organized around job-shadowing opportunities with alumni and field visits to organizations with a focus on renewable energy, water/air/land conservation, sustainable agriculture, and climate change mitigation, along with programming at MIIS and the Center for the Blue Economy in Monterey. The experience will also include reflection dinners and career conversations with other select alumni and friends of the College. Students will travel and live together as a cohort, and the week will kick-off with an Energy2028 Summit Reception including alumni and student participants on the first day of the trip in SF.
