The Northwestern University Center for Global Engagement is excited to
announce that *applications are now available* for the Global Engagement
Summer Institute, a unique summer program in Bolivia, Nicaragua, India, and
Uganda. The program involves a 7-day preparatory institute in Chicago,
followed by an 8-week, team-based internship at a host nonprofit.

This is a great opportunity that pairs rigorous academic training with
hands-on international community development experience. Do you think this
might interest your students?

Please feel free to forward the following message (below and attached) to
appropriate listservs and students and feel free to contact me with any
questions. We'd also be thrilled for any personal recommendations you may
have for students who would be good candidates for our program!

Many thanks in advance.

Warm regards,

Nicole Patel
