The Summer Enrichment Program is for current Illinois Wesleyan MALANA and International students. The program focuses on three major areas: academic, professional, and personal growth. As participants of the program, students will have a paid internship, learn from formal training workshops, and will work on a summer long project servicing the Bloomington-Normal community. These activities will be designed to enhance the students' team building and leadership skills. Those who complete the program will be awarded a scholarship.
