The Streicker International Fellows Fund was established in early 2015 by John H. Streicker ’64 to provide undergraduate students the opportunity to carry out substantive research or educational projects while immersed in a foreign culture. Streicker Fellows design their own projects or internships in conjunction with a hosting organization, in any academic or professional area, and in any geographic region outside of the United States. These projects or internships provide students with exceptional opportunities for intellectual and personal growth through a combination of work or research and immersion in a foreign culture.

Only projects or internships that involve collaboration with a host organization will be considered for funding. Projects or internships must be unpaid and last a minimum of eight weeks. In designing a project or internship, students are encouraged to connect with organizations that are aligned with their career and/or academic interests. It is also critical that projects or internships are designed to ensure extensive cultural immersion in the local community.
