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.
In summer 2021, GRI will run the Summer Fellows Program provided CDC and university guidelines permit student travel and partner countries accept travelers coming from the United States. More details will be available in spring 2021. Please contact Acting Director of Programs & Outreach [[rmhalleran,Rebecca Latourell]] with any questions.
