IDIP is on hiatus for the 2018/19 academic year to accommodate changes in the university’s Global Engagement area. Interested students who intended to apply for IDIP 2018/19 are encouraged to speak with an Education Abroad advisor to consider other options for the 2018/19 academic year. Those who wish to apply to IDIP for participation in 2019/20 can check with the Education Abroad Office in Winter Quarter 2019.
The International Development Internship Program (IDIP) is a 20 credit, three-phase academic program designed for undergraduate students. Students are challenged to explore the root causes and consequences of situations that undermine the well-being of individuals in the developing world, while cultivating leadership skills as a change agent at a local non-governmental organization (NGO). Internships are available in Asia, Africa, and Latin America.
