A Three-Part Experience
Sorensen Fellowship 2013 (deadline passed; 2014 application available in summer 2013):
- Spring 2013: Take a course of your choosing as academic preparation for your internship.
- Summer 2013: Intern in the organization of your choice, anywhere in the world. Tackle issues of international importance like coexistence, human rights, international law, hunger relief, gender equality, development, education, global health, AIDS prevention, refugee assistance, or something we haven't thought of!
- Fall 2013: Take a course with the other Fellows to reflect and write about the internship experience.
Sorensen Fellows receive a $4000 stipend ($3500 if internship is in the U.S.) intended to cover travel and modest living expenses for a summer internship.
Sorensen Fellows must be Brandeis sophomores or juniors in the fall of 2012. Students from any major are eligible. Fellows must be on campus in Spring 2013 and Fall 2013. We are pleased to consider applications from those who have previously applied.
