Hours: Between 15-25 hours per week, during regular business hours
Contact: Michelle Foley, email@example.com
Description of the Internship
The FEA Outreach & Scholarships Intern position was created in response to FEA's increasing growth. The intern will assist the Program Coordinator to communicate with key study abroad/international education contacts at universities and colleges across the country to ensure that all advisors and eligible students know of FEA scholarships for the 2017-2018 cycle. The intern will also serve as a point of contact for students/advisors/recommenders who have questions about the scholarship application process.
Major benefits for the intern include gaining important knowledge of nonprofit administration, access to training in marketing and communications, and a network of committed International Education professionals. Because FEA is small-staffed organization, interns will get hands on experience in a variety of areas and will have the opportunity for meaningful involvement in shaping the direction of the organization.
FEA believes strongly in the principle of providing interns with structured responsibilities, clear direction, and useful evaluation. FEA expects this position to provide the intern with relevant skills and training as well as important feedback.
