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