About the Spring Break Connections Externship Program:
Taubman College sponsors a one-week unpaid program for the week of spring break, Monday February 28 – Friday, March 4, 2011 for students interested in learning more about the practice of architecture, urban design, or urban planning. It is an opportunity to gain hands-on experience in your specific field to give you a deeper understanding of what your chosen career holds for you. This program is unpaid, there is no course credit awarded, and you are responsible for all your travel and living expenses.
Last year, 165 students [133 architecture, 24 planning, and 8 urban design] learned about their intended profession in 150 organizations and firms across the United States.
At the meeting you will learn much more about how the program works, eligibility requirements to participate, the process and timeline to apply, etc. After the meetings, Beth Berenter will email a link to the application form for the program. The deadline for applying will be Monday, November 29, 2010. An up-to-date resume will also be due with your application on that date.
