The SEED program (Small Enterprise Education and Development) is an international internship opportunity for students of all majors to help individuals in developing countries rise above poverty through mentorship and small business creation.  Students spend a full semester in one of 3 countries: Ghana, the Philippines or Peru.  This opportunity gives them real life experience, allowing them to take what they’ve learned in the classroom and implement it in a meaningful and impactful way. 

Thanks to generous contributions from our donors, we are currently able to send 14 interns each semester to our countries of operation.  Each student that is selected as a SEED intern receives a $2500 scholarship which helps cover basic costs such as food, travel and lodging. This allows them to have a transformative international experience at little to no personal expense, all while providing an experience which will not only have an impact on their future, but the future of the people who they work with.

We look forward to the growth of the SEED program, expanding into different cities and countries and creating more internship opportunities for our students.
