The Honors College will now allow student internships in Leipzig, Germany.
Each year, Honors students apply to be interns in the College’s prestigious summer internship programs. The application process, requiring an essay and interview, results in a select few who use the spring semester to prepare for summers away from home.
In previous years, internships were offered at CitySquare in Dallas and at various government and nongovernment organizations in Washington, D.C.
Centered around service overseas, the internship seeks to provide service experiences for interested Honors students. Students who attend the internship program will do so at ACU’s villa in Leipzig.
The internship will only accept four people, making it one of the more competitive summer programs available to Honors students. Laura Patterson, Honors College Coordinator, is eager for the college to offer this opportunity to students this year.
“It will be competitive, [but] international travel’s always interesting,” said Patterson.
The internship, being six weeks long, will focus on serving those in the Leipzig community.
Patterson said it will be mostly volunteer-based with more opportunities for international growth.
Interning in Leipzig won’t be completely service oriented–students will be able to expand their horizons and make international connections regardless of their major.
Whether a well-seasoned traveler or an international first-timer, any Honors student can apply to the internship in Leipzig, where they can look forward to experiencing service and travel in a new way.
Applications are now available online.
