Also, if the student exchanging with you has a room and board plan abroad, you will only have to pay Hartwick’s room and board fees to get a room and a meal plan in the foreign.

1. International Internships
Many of Hartwick’s study abroad affiliates can arrange internship opportunities for students who study abroad through their programs.
Some students elect to do a part-time internship for a whole semester while taking classes. Students who work in another culture and language tend to get the most out of their international experiences.
Full-time internships overseas can also be arranged; however, because of immigration laws, it is not always possible to be paid. You can compete for one of Hartwick’s Emerson International Internship Scholarships to cover much of the cost.

2. Independent Research
Students who are writing their thesis on an international topic benefit significantly from having access to libraries, museums and other resources in-country. In order to facilitate independent research, Hartwick College offers students the chance to compete for the Duffy Family Ambassador Fund Scholarships There are other exciting opportunities overseas, such as working in a laboratory at a European university. International research is rewarding and interesting, and it can open the doors to graduate school or employment at a multinational company.

3. Service Learning
Doing community service in an international context can really open your eyes to different aspects of the culture. Students who volunteer have the chance to give something back to their host country and find the experiences very rewarding.
Students can combine study with volunteer service or go during J Term or summer to work. Many of Hartwick’s affiliates can arrange for service-learning opportunities while you study abroad. Other organizations dedicate themselves to placing college students in international volunteer situations.
