Freeman Indonesia Non Profit Internship

The Freeman Indonesia Nonprofit Internship Program (FINIP), funded by the Freeman Foundation and administered by the Institute of International Education (IIE), aims to develop student leaders and strengthen the nonprofit sector in Indonesia. IIE will select and pair 10 Indonesian students pursuing U.S. degrees with 10 U.S. undergraduates and arrange internships for them to work together in an Indonesian nonprofit organization.

The 9-week experience, from June 15 to August 13, 2011, arranged by IIE's partner organization, the Indonesian International Education Foundation (IIEF), will take place in three cities: Bandung, Malang, and Yogyakarta. All program-related costs will be covered.

Upon returning to the U.S., students will be expected to share their experiences with peers on their home ca> mpuses and to explore ways to incorporate what they learned over the summer into their academic and professional careers.

Interested American and Indonesian sophomores and juniors enrolled in U.S. institutions are encouraged to apply, using the online application at http://www.iie.org/programs/finip. The deadline for submission of completed student applications and adviser nominations is March 1, 2011.
