UI Senior Lands Internship
Internship placement companies such as the University of Dreams and The Washington Center say they're seeing an increase in applicants for such internships. A Washington Center scholarship paid for Mahmoud Siddig's $9,000 internship, which included housing. Seddig, a senior economics major at The University of Iowa, worked at the Organization of American States last summer, where he helped his supervisor set up and lead meetings. There, he met the Saudi Arabian and Egyptian ambassadors and congressmen from Iowa, Indiana, and California, and he discussed issues related to his homeland of Sudan and the United States.
