Time Commitment:

Winter Semester: The cohort will meet once a month to cover important pre-departure topics and will be required to attend additional workshops/events as determined by the International Center staff. The Winter 2018 meetings will take place on the following dates:

- Wednesday, January 10th
- Wednesday, February 7th
- Wednesday, March 7th
- Wednesday, April 4th

All workshops will take place from 5:30 PM - 7:00 PM in the LSA Building, Room 2001.

Summer: Participants who've completed the requirements of the program and have received their HTH health insurance, will be expected to blog at least three times over the summer.

Returning Fall Semester: Returnees will need to attend the returnee/reflection session and will present a short presentation about their international experiences.

Eligibility

Restricted to U-M Ann Arbor undergraduate students only. Participants should be returning to U-M for at least one semester after their summer abroad.

Costs

No cost. Successful participation in the program will result in the International Center purchasing participant's international health insurance.

Dates & Deadlines

Application deadline: Sunday, December 17, 2017

Because IC Global Wolverines enables you to select your own internship, the dates you are abroad will depend on the internship secured. Post-internship/project activities occur in the Fall semester after return.
