Opportunities in Dynamic Asian Cities
With the success of the Freeman Foundation Grant program, Champlain expanded in 2019 to include opportunities in Kyoto, Japan. Since then, the grant expanded even further to offer opportunities in Kyoto, Bangkok, Seoul, and Singapore!
Why is this significant to business students?
From tourist destinations to tech hubs, Asia is a robust continent with a myriad of cultures and experiences. Interning in one of these multinational urban environments allows Stiller students to take an active role in these vibrant, growing economies.
An international internship in Asia offers professional development, real-world work experience, and the ability to gain a new cultural experience in a beautiful location. Intern in fields such as:
- marketing and advertising
- business and economics
- media and public relations
- logistics and supply management
- entrepreneurship, and more.
What costs does the grant cover?
So, you're interested in a possible internship in Asia, but let's get to the point—what does the grant cover?
The Freeman Foundation Grant provides:
- a stipend (a fixed regular sum, paid as an allowance) to allow you to pay toward normal expenses associated with a semester or summer internship in China, Japan, and other cities in Asia
- room and board through trusted third-party providers
- an internship placement fee
- 24/7 in-country support while you are abroad
What it does NOT cover:
- any regional travel
- other goods while you are abroad
Airfare to China, Japan, or other cities in Asia may be eligible for coverage depending on the availability of funds.
Meaningful Work That's Relevant to Your Career
Champlain College will work with our partners to match your major and interests to appropriate internships through well-established networks of in-country organizations. Our faculty and staff routinely travel to various locations to check-in, connect with internship supervisors and officials, and help you upon your arrival and departure.
While there, our staff members also interview site supervisors to ensure a shared understanding of the high level of work Champlain students are prepared for, and the value they add to the organizations where they intern.
We make intentional efforts to ensure that you'll participate in real work rather than make photocopies. Our expectations about the work you'll do are clear to both you and your supervisors, and are a priority to assure quality and success for you and future interns in these organizations.
