GRADUATE STUDENTS
Work OVERSEAS on a PAID internship while earning ACADEMIC CREDIT

To date, 34 UF graduate students have undertaken humanitarian and
environmental summer internships with the Coca-Cola World Citizenship
Program to make a positive impact internationally by helping improve the
quality of life in emerging nations.  Now, in this, the third year of the
Program, you too have a chance to make a difference in your life and the
lives of others, while obtaining UF Credit. You will work in a developing
country, contributing, for example, to improving its educational system, its
natural environment, or its quality of health and economic sustainability.

The Coca-Cola World Citizenship Program at the University of Florida will
provide you with a unique opportunity to work with CARE, the Red Cross, The
World Conservation Union (IUCN), or Forest Management Trust regional offices
in Africa, Asia or Latin America.  You will be able to experience the
sights, sounds and new friendships to be gained from your interaction with
different cultures and share these with others on your return.  Moreover, in
addition to one unit of academic credit, successful applicants will receive
a stipend that pays for the trip and related expenses and they will gain
valuable work experience.

The UF International Center (UFIC) coordinates the program and the selection
of applicants.
To Qualify:
       You must be a UF graduate or professional student in good academic
standing in either a master's or a doctoral program (with no restrictions on
citizenship).
       A Letter of Recommendation from your Advisor, approving 1 credit hour of
study, must accompany your completed on-line application form.
       Previous international travel experience is preferred, but not required.
       Proficiency in a second language may be required.

Requirements:
       Attend a training session in Spring 2001.
       Accept an assignment in Africa or Latin America for 12 weeks in summer
2003 under the supervision of the partner organization.
       Carry out daily assignments and follow the agency rules.
       Agree to abide by the host country's laws and UF's Student Code of
Conduct.
       Keep a journal of your experiences.
       Write a summary report of the benefits of your experiences from the trip.

The Application Deadline is Monday November 4, 2002
