The program will host a number of additional activities and workshops throughout the academic year. Round table discussions and guest speakers will give students the opportunity to learn from each other and to discuss important international issues. These meetings will also provide opportunities for alumni to share insights and suggestions with students preparing for their internships.
Professional development events will also include visits to Washington, D.C. and Capitol Hill featuring meetings with policy leaders, resume and cover letter workshops, networking workshops, Congressional staff-led Capitol tours, and more. One-on-one resume, cover letter, interview, and internship coaching is offered by Global Fellows staff throughout the year.
A final academic showcase event at the conclusion of the year will bring students together for presentations of their work and to share their experiences. This event will feature a display of student posters and fliers describing and reflecting on their internship and program experiences. In addition to current and prospective students in the program, instructors, internship supervisors, University of Maryland administrators, and program alumni will be invited to attend.
