The Beacon Fellowship for Business is not your everyday overseas internship program. Like others, it is a study abroad program. It appeals to students who want to go overseas for a defined period of time to experience cultural immersion. It is also an intern abroad program. It appeals to students who want not only to experience that immersion, but also to further their career path while doing so. But even beyond that, it is a high-end intern abroad fellowship.
That is to say, our target student is interested in business, finance, or consulting, but differs from his/her peers in that he/she is an outstanding student. For this fellowship, only those with a GPA of 3.65 or higher will be admitted. Companies abroad are excited by the prospect of these impressive students.
The internships will be twenty hours/week for four weeks, taking part in three different blocks recurring consecutively beginning May 15th, with the third and final block for the summer 2017 ending on Friday, August 4th.
