Housing at Wellesley College
Please refer to the Student Housing page for more information about returning from study abroad:
The Center for Work and Service is available to work with you while you are abroad to identify appropriate internship opportunities.
You can schedule appointments to communicate with the Career Education staff via Skype, Google Hangout (chat/video), or phone. Log in to your MyCWS account to schedule an appointment and email the career advisor to specify you are abroad and indicate the communication method you would like to use.
Career Education Identified Internships and Grants
Career Education provides a full-listing of available internship opportunities on their website here and updates this information each fall. The Tanner Conference archives are another great resource to identify opportunities.
PowerPoint slides for information sessions will be made available on the Career Education website after the session takes place on campus.
Remember that applications for identified internships are typically due during wintersession/early Spring semester, while Grant applications are typically due in early March; these applications are available online. Interviews can be conducted via video call, phone, or chat if applicants are studying abroad while the interview process is taking place. If you need to participate remotely in one of these ways, please notify the programs immediately.
Students participating in study abroad programs that conflict with the anticipated start (late May/early June) or end (early-mid August) of a Career Education internship should notify Career Education as soon as they become a finalist for selection. Although most partner organizations are flexible, the internship dates would need to be confirmed with the organization as soon as possible.
Some companies and organizations conducting on-campus interviews are willing to interview applicants who are studying abroad via Skype or video chat. Some companies also set up specific interview schedules for study aboard students (clearly labeled for study aboard in the posting). To apply for a schedule, log in to your MyCWS account. Go to On Campus Interview Schedules -> View Eligible Schedules.
Many students, once abroad, are keen to learn about ways to pursue graduate studies overseas and may wish to pursue national fellowships that will fund graduate study, travel, service projects or teaching abroad. Keep in mind that many of the major fellowship programs of interest to students who return from study abroad, such as the Rhodes, Marshall, Fulbright, Watson and others, have early fall deadlines. Students who are considering applying to one of these programs should look into the requirements and the application process before leaving campus, ideally, or during the spring semester at the latest. Elizabeth Mandeville in the Career Education is available to Skype with students overseas who are interested in such opportunities.
