Winter/Spring Programs with Foundation of Sustainable Development (FSD)
The Foundation for Sustainable Development is currently accepting applications for the Winter/Spring Programs in Africa, Latin America and Asia sites. FSD training programs are highly immersive, bringing students, professionals, and retirees on-site to support critical grassroots initiatives. Rather than work on aid-based, short-term projects, participants collaborate with community partners to enhance local capacity to address health, social, environmental, and economic issues. With ongoing support from FSD Site Teams, all programs include: orientation, family homestay, language and grassroots development trainings, seed Grant + access to additional funding for strong projects, hands-on project development experience, debriefing sessions, cultural activities, and access to FSD’s Alumni Connect program.
1) Intern Abroad for 9-52 weeks (with opportunities for funding for public health students through the Evans Memorial Scholarship ($3k)
2) Global Service Trip for 1-4 weeks for student groups in J-term
3) ProCorps Volunteering for 10 days to 12 weeks for professionals
Deadline is November 1, 2013. For ore information on application process and financial support, click here.
