Interested in gaining summer work experience overseas? With the support of the Robert and Susan Trice International Fellowship Endowment and the Class of 1970 Endowment, the Global Research Institute Summer Fellows Program provides international experiential learning opportunities to W&M students.

Past GRI Summer Fellows have hailed from a variety of disciplines, including data science, government, biology, public policy, and economics. Successful applicants are paired with W&M faculty and international organizations to conduct research and promote capacity building around the world.

Past projects include: creating a dataset on Indonesian electoral outcomes, an evaluation of the Monrovia Football Academy, a white paper on applications of blockchain technology for Korean reunification through reforestation, a set of data governance policies for a new geospatial platform within a UN agency, and a randomized controlled trial on community policing and public trust in Colombia.

To learn more, check out past Fellows’ experiences on our blog and watch our video.

Applications for the Summer 2024 cohort are available here and are due January 12, 2024 by 11:59 pm.
