However, you can use financial aid to help fund your experience. By participating in an internship or research project abroad you will gain academic credit toward your degree, a better understanding of your field of study and an outstanding resume. Students find an internship or research opportunity independently or work with Danielle Varnes (International Internship Coordinator) to identify an opportunity that fits thier goals.
