The Institute is sponsoring an internship focused on the Integrating Disabilities series. This series is a collaboration between the Institute, National Center for Institutional Diversity (NCID) and the UM Initiative on Disability Studies (UMinds). Our intern, Megan Marshall, is a Political Science and English major with a focus on disability studies. She will be coordinating the logistical details for all the events, publicizing the series with a specific focus on promoting undergraduate student involvement and participation in the series and assisting the faculty coordinators who are leading the events.
The Institute for the Humanities has established a partnership with the Center for International and Comparative Studies (CICS) to provide scholarship support for undergraduate internships and study abroad opportunities as well as research grants. Scholarships range from $500 to $3,500 for a total of $20,000 in annual scholarship support.

The Institute for the Humanities provides support to the Center for Global and Intercultural Study (CGIS) to fund one Global Intercultural Experience for Undergraduates (GIEU) site each summer. In 2011 the Institute provided funding support for a project in Indonesia with the topic of "Preserving Ecology and Local Culture in a Global World."
