AGRADU offers UNC students with an 8 week summer internship opportunity. Interns are selected through an application process. The application for the Summer 2015 Internship has closed. Interested UNC students are encouraged to apply next year. The application opens mid-October and is due mid-November in 2015.
2015 Summer Internship Model
As an AGRADU intern, you have the opportunity to organize and implement your own project while in Uganda. Since AGRADU sends 2-3 interns to each site, you are able to complete an individual and/or group project. The project planning period begins with the Co-chairs initiating contact with our CBOs. Once we understand the needs of the community, we will try to tailor those needs to your individual interests and skills. Ultimately, it is the interns responsibility to continue communication with their respective CBO, though AGRADU will oversee this process. In the past, interns have completed projects that dealt with water sanitation, nutrition, women's sanitary needs, education, journalism, and marketing. Project ideas are very flexible and our CBOs are willing to work with each intern's individual interest.
The 8 week internship will last tentatively from May 29 thru July 27.
The internship is 100% self-funded. AGRADU connects interns with funding opportunities to off-set the portion of out-of-pocket expenses. This is solely an estimated cost, as the actual cost of the internship depends on each interns specific site, excursions, and general spending habits while in Uganda.
**We encourage all interested students to apply and to not let funding deter them from an amazing opportunity, as we will help the selected interns fund for their trips.
