Attend the information session to learn more!
November 17 @ 4:10pm in Williams 70
Students will learn about opportunities to intern through the Iacocca International Internship Program with Pathways Development Initiative (PDI). PDI is a local, grass-roots organization working to reduce poverty and
promote empowerment in the Bududa region of Uganda. Interns can work on a diversity of projects related to early education, public health, village savings and loans, small business development, and youth sports programs.
Students can also learn about opportunities to conduct public health, gender, or environmental – related research in Bududa, Uganda with funding through grants like GELH or Strohl.
Student-led research will be conducted under the supervision of Professor Kelly Austin and/or Professor Mark Noble.
All of these opportunities are fully funded and are open to undergraduate students of all majors. Only students that are returning to Lehigh University in Fall 2017 can apply (no graduating seniors).
The summer Uganda opportunities are 6-8 weeks in length, with (tentative) travel dates of around June 1-July 26. Lehigh students & faculty stay with a local family and have ample opportunities to learn about the culture and
work with community groups of interest. Bududa is a beautiful, mountainous region in Eastern Uganda. Activities include going on safari, hiking waterfalls, and coffee tours.
