Announcing the 2012 recipients of the AUCC Students for Development awards
The Internship Offices Network is pleased to announce that McGill University was awarded eight Students for Development awards for the summer 2012, as part of its multi-year projects with Green Power and Nexos Voluntarios, through the AUCC Students for Development competition (AUCC-SFD), funded by CIDA.
The AUCC-SFD program supports internships for senior-level Canadian students (upper-level undergraduate to PhD) to work with partner organizations in developing and emerging countries, for a minimum of three months and for academic credit, with an award of $6,500. McGill University now has two multi-year AUCC-SFD projects, one with Nexos Voluntarios, a Peruvian NGO, and one with Green Power, a Kenyan NGO. The programs are run as a partnership between the Institute for the Study of International Development, the Internship Offices Network, and the respective developing country partner.
The 2012 AUCC-SFD recipeints are: Avrah Levitan-Cooper, Jefferson Morris, Alana Taylor, Sophie Papineau-Wolff and Nadia Argueta for internships with Nexos Voluntarios; and Etienne Cayer, Liam Kirwin and Kimberley Smith for internships with Green Power.
