The Kellogg Institute for International Studies supports undergraduate research and internships in Africa, Asia, Latin America, and the United States related to the Kellogg research themes of democracy and human development. Students can apply for an Experiencing the World (ETW) Fellowship, Kellogg/Kroc Undergraduate Research Grant and Summer Entrepreneurial Internship to receive training, funding, and reentry support.
In most cases, applicants for the above programs are expected to work with a host organization, which requires students to make contact with the organization where they would like to intern or do research. Students should work closely with the organization to develop a work plan.

Center for Hospice Care/PCAU - Uganda
In partnership with the Center for Hospice Care (located in Mishawaka), PCAU provides educational and social support to children in need in Uganda. The Road to Hope program supports children who were caregivers for their dying parents. Building on the work of previous interns, the student will support the Road to Hope program staff in several ways: participation in the annual summer camp for children, capturing and sharing success stories, visiting children at home and school, organizational support for tracking the children. There is also an opportunity to explore research questions related to the magnitude of need, the impact of the social support offered in the program and evaluation of the program model. Interested students should contact Lacey Ahern at firstname.lastname@example.org
