Winter Study Field Study/Internships

There are many opportunities for students to do field study during Winter Study, either through Indendent Study (99s) or via a number of regular courses. (There are also some travel courses that include field work.)

1. 99 internships: 

The Winter Study Committee (WSC) supports internships that provide “an opportunity for active intellectual exploration—that is experience shaped by thought.”  Proposals for internships, volunteer positions and research or teaching apprenticeships must have supporting letters from sponsoring institutions, and must desribe the activities the student will be involved in, as well as the intellectual challenge of that experience. The student must be engaged in project activities for at least 26 hours per week and the expectation is that the student will have a reading list and research project/paper that complements the field study.

Students cannot receive pay for work done for Winter Study Credit.

The deadline to submit an 99 internship is 26 September.
