4W partners with UW-Madison’s International Internship Program (IIP) to offer summer internships in alignment with 4W projects. Internships are led by our faculty leaders and coordinated by IIP advisors. Made possible by private gifts and a partnership with the Women’s Philanthropy Council, these local and global internships allow students to make a difference while developing important leadership and job skills. 4W hopes to support 20 undergraduate internships per year in alignment with our growing activities and partnerships.
