More than 60 UF graduate students have participated in the Coca-Cola World
Citizenship Program, earning credit toward their degrees while making a
positive international impact by helping to improve the humanitarian and
environmental quality of life in emerging nations.  Now in its fifth year,
this program allows you to have the chance to make a difference in your life

of health and economic sustainability.  Participants work with the Red

Children in regional offices in Africa, Asia, Latin America and the
Caribbean.  They earn three units of academic credit plus a stipend covering
a percentage of living expenses, travel to and from their assigned country,
immunizations and medical emergency evacuation insurance.

The UF International Center (UFIC) coordinates this program and the
selection of participants.  To qualify, you must be a UF graduate or
professional student in good standing in your master's degree or doctoral
degree program.  A recommendation letter from your advisor, approving three
credits of study, must accompany your completed online application form.
Previous international travel experience is preferred, but not required.
Proficiency in a second language may be required.  There are no citizenship
restrictions.

Chosen applicants must attend a training session during Spring 2005 and
accept an assignment in Africa, Asia, Latin America or the Caribbean for 12
weeks in Summer 2005 under the supervision of the partner organization.
They must carry out daily assignments and follow agency rules, agree to
abide by the host country's laws and the UF Student Code of Conduct, keep a
journal of their experiences and write a summary report about the benefits
of their experiences from their overseas internship.

The application deadline for this program is Monday, 1 November 2004.  For
