2013 Bonderman Fellowship – accepting applications

Dear Students,

We write to share an extraordinary opportunity for travel, discovery, and challenge. The 2013 Bonderman Travel Fellowship application is now available and we encourage you to consider applying. Graduate and professional students, undergraduate students in the University Honors Program (of junior and senior credit standing), and undergraduate students in UW Tacoma’s Global Honors Program (of junior and senior credit standing) in good standing are eligible for this opportunity.

David Bonderman – the donor – wishes to give students an opportunity to experience learning and growth in new and unexpected ways. Bonderman Fellows will undertake international travel on their own for eight months, to six or more countries in two or more major regions of the world. Through solo travel the Fellows will focus on exploration and discovery, learning about the world and themselves in it.

Up to seven graduate and seven undergraduate Bonderman Fellowships will be awarded in Spring 2013. Each fellowship carries a $20,000 award to be used only for extended solo international travel. Fellows may not conduct research, pursue an academic project, or participate in a formal program or organization.

Summer Internships with Southwestern

Southwest Airlines is hiring for a large number of summer internships currently, some of which look like they could be of interest to students in STEM programs. The application deadline is 12/3. The internships are located in Dallas, but one of the ‘perks’ of being a Southwest intern is free travel!

The posting is currently listed in HuskyJobs, but the application instructions just drive candidates to the same weblinks/URL in the attached materials. Please forward to your students as you see fit.

Thanks!
