WESEMINAR Patricelli Center for Social Entrepreneurship Internship Grants: Student Stories and Reflections
As part of Wesleyan’s Summer Experience Grant program, the Patricelli Center offers stipends to students who will take unpaid or low-paid internships to do socially-responsible work around the globe. Recipients have traveled to India, Ghana, Jordan, Nepal, Wisconsin, California, New York City, and beyond. They have worked in human rights, environmental sustainability, food justice, international development, mental health care, and other fields. Each has benefitted from the experiential learning that complements their academic studies, providing opportunities to put theory into practice – without a financial burden.
