Freeman Asia Internship Program

亚洲实习计划

Freeman Asia interns visited the Taal Volcano on the island of Luzon in the Philippines.

Thanks to the generous support of the Freeman Foundation, the Illinois Wesleyan University Hart Career Center and Study Abroad Office will be able to support IWU students to complete funded internships in Asia for approximately six to eight weeks. Locations include Taiwan, Japan, and the Philippines!

Please join us for an information session on Thurs. Oct. 21, 2021 at 4pm or Tues. Jan. 11, 2022 at 4pm in CNS 101.
