The Public Service Internship Award is to support increasing student interest and participation in public service, especially foreign service and/or globally focused civil service internships. These experiences give students a coveted and highly valuable inside look at service and diplomacy in action and reveal the wide range of careers associated with public service. These experiences are often unpaid and living and travel is costly.
The awards will be given to students who secure experiential learning opportunities during summer or semester abroad programs. Recipients will be able to apply their work experience to myriad endeavors and will gain a distinguished advantage compared to their peers because of their direct experience working with global issues.
Students will be given a $3,000 – $5,000 internship award for programs that directly relate to public, foreign or civil service. Students will submit the application and be selected by a committee comprised of School of Languages, Cultures, and World Affairs faculty. The selection committee will recommend award winners to the Dean of LCWA, who will make the final selections. The number of awards given will vary.
All materials must be submitted by the deadline of Wednesday, March 11, 2020.

We’re happy to announce this Spring’s LCWA World Affairs Colloquium’s
Special lecturer Andrei S. Markovits is an Arthur Thurnau Professor and the Karl W. Deutsch Collegiate Professor at the University of Michigan.
On March 2nd he will be presenting his talk, “Vile Nature of Fandom.” This will be at 6:30pm in Addlestone Library, room 227.
Virtually no weekend passes in which we do not read of yet another blatantly racist incident on one of Europe’s football grounds be they in England, Italy or pretty much anywhere in Europe. Why is this the case? This lecture will highlight how virtually all fandom encapsulates the potential for such counter-cosmopolitan behavior, but why its most ugly manifestation has become so ensconced in the world of Association Football, aka soccer.
On March 3rd he will presenting his talk, “Women’s Soccer: International-Cultural Phenomenon.” This will be at 6:00pm at the Charleston Library Society.
Women in North American soccer entered a field that was more open for them, since men were busy covering multiple playing fields and cultural spaces: baseball, football (American and Canadian), basketball, and ice hockey. Their European counterparts were forced to contest what has arguably been the most male-dominated field/space in European public life. Both of these roads harbored immense obstacles. Both entailed challenges of their own that these pioneering women had to overcome. Come, learn more about their struggle and victory, and how it has changed the international scene.
