Established in 2014 by John Wasileski (BA'75) to support one or more undergraduate students in the Faculty of Arts, the John Wasileski Arts Externship Awards provide current students the opportunity to gain exposure to and better understand the professional world while contributing to their host organization. The program helps students develop new skills, gain valuable experience, network in the business environment, and learn more about professional and entrepreneurial opportunities. The student’s role is to contribute to the host organization by undertaking a wide variety of tasks, sharing ideas, and working with employees in various functions. The awards are administered through the Dean’s Office in conjunction with the Faculty of Arts Internship Office by providing partial funding to assist with travel and other expenses related to their externship. This award is part of the McGill International Experience Awards initiative. For more information, click here.
