The Allan A. Hodgson Arts Internship Award was established by Allan A. Hodgson (BA’58) to help students enrolled in the Summer Internship Program in the Faculty of Arts gain firsthand understanding of the global community, and of issues pertaining to international development. Administered through the Dean’s Office in conjunction with the Faculty of Arts Internship Office, this award is designed to lend financial support to students, who wish to pursue an internship in the field of international development. The award is meant to provide partial funding to assist students with travel and other expenses related to their internship.
Students must have a demonstrated interest in the area of international development and propose an internship with a host organization actively engaged in this field. Relevant topics include, but are not limited to, microfinance projects, education, environmental sustainability, medical services, community development and legal aid.
