Funded by a generous donation from William & Mary alum Carol Woody '71, Carol Woody Internship Awards are available for academically distinguished students participating in GSWS, with a preference for women students. The award is intended to offer a "real world" experience as preparation for professional career and/or post-graduate opportunities. The awards are available for students interested in doing an internship during the summer.
Applicants are asked to submit to the Director of GSWS a one page description of where they will spend their internship, why they chose this particular internship, and what they hope to gain from the experience. Please include an estimate of expenses. Awards usually range from $200-$400 depending on available funds.
Past winners include Shan Davis, Pamela Palmer (Law School), Katherine Aument, Sewon Chung, and Amanda Potter. Their activities included working with non-profits on the U.S./Mexico border and in Nicaragua, and summer internships in Washington DC.
