LATIN AMERICAN STUDIES
SUMMER INTERNSHIPS, 2001
WHAT are they?
Stetson Latin American Studies Summer Interns work for four to
six weeks in local government offices in Campeche, Durazno and Villaguay,
and with the non-governmental organization, Alliance for International
Reforestation, in Estelí and Chimaltenango. Interns are encouraged
to think about internship opportunities that would best fit their goals
of educational and professional development. In all cases, local contacts
arrange host family stays providing room and board. Stetson pays
transportation and insurance costs.

HOW do I apply?
All students interested in one of these internships must speak Spanish well enough to get by speaking only Spanish for four to six weeks. They must submit a one-to-two page proposal stating:
This proposal is due no later than Friday, January 25th (the end of the 2nd week of Spring Semester) in Room 334 of Elizabeth Hall. In February, 5 - 10 applicants will be chosen based on the strength of their proposals to meet individually with members of the Latin American Studies Program to more fully discuss their proposal and to converse in Spanish. Final decisions will be made shortly thereafter (i.e. early March). All further questions may be directed to Dr. William Nylen (email@example.com) or to any faculty member in Stetson’s Latin American Studies Program.
- what they would like to accomplish with this internship,
- how it might be useful to their future career and lifetime goals, and
- their preference for one or another internship location.
