– provide a service to the organization by contributing their time and talents – create professional partnerships
– pursue their fields of interest related, or not, to their current profession

AWARD PACKAGE: No financial assistance, housing, or travel are provided as part of this opportunity. Students are responsible for making their own arrangements.
