Internship in Africa Competition

ONE, a grassroots poverty fighting & disease prevention organization, and Chegg have teamed up to bring eight outstanding students the opportunity of a lifetime: a summer internship in Africa.

This internship program will give eight college students the opportunity to become fully immersed in the issues faced by millions living on less than $1.25 a day in sub-Saharan Africa. Students will raise awareness of extreme poverty, disease and how these issues limit African students’ access to a quality education. Students will get to experience the fight against extreme poverty and disease where it’s happening – and come back fully energized to guide other students as the next generation of advocates on campuses across the country.

In 500 words or less applicants should explain why they are passionate about social change, improving access to education, fighting extreme poverty, or other relevant issues.  Applicants should also describe their current efforts on the campus. 

The top 50 applicants will be entered into a public voting round. 

After voting ends, the top 20 finalists will then travel to Washington, D.C. to meet with members of Congress, the ONE team, like-minded students and social entrepreneurs.

The deadline is February 10, 2012.
