Program Description:

Freeman Foundation Scholarship for East Asia Internships

International internships are powerfully transformative experiences, enabling students to connect their academic discipline with the professional sphere, gain hands-on experiences, learn (and apply) a global perspective to their trade, develop soft skills in high demand by future employers, and network with industry leaders.  Through the generous support of the Freeman Foundation, the KU Study Abroad is able to award scholarships ranging from $2,500-$5,000 to KU undergraduate or graduate students participating in Summer or Fall, credit-bearing internships of six weeks duration or longer in one of the following Asian countries: Cambodia, China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Laos, Macao, Malaysia, Mongolia, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand or Vietnam.  Scholarship funds support students participating in KU-administered internship programs in China and Korea, as well as programs offered through partner organizations or self-arranged internships. 

Recipients must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents.  All recipients will be required to complete a follow-on project upon return from their overseas internship.
