We frequently receive questions regarding internship opportunities students pursue while attending Harris, and wanted to share a brief Q&A with student Marie-Noelle Steinig on her summer in Namibia working at UNICEF, in which Marie discusses the internship and major lessons, as well as how the experience has impacted her career plans.
Often, students coming to Harris directly from their undergraduate institution are eager to increase their professional experience, while students who are seeking a degree to help change or advance their careers are looking for opportunities to try something new. Additionally, Harris students from outside of Illinois are excited to use internships to explore the policy issues facing the local communities. Detailed information on the various internships, fellowships, and summer funding can be found here; with additional information on summer internships here.
