Through the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Scholarships (QES) program, VIU will be funding twenty (20) internship placements over three years with established partner organizations in QES eligible countries working on projects related to Building Resilience in Coastal Communities (BRiCC). Interns will receive funding to cover tuition, living and travel expenses for overseas placements of 3-4 months in length.

The internships represent a unique opportunity for experiential learning, the development of cross-cultural understanding and communication skills, and first-hand experience of grassroots community engagement.

Participants in the program will also be expected to contribute to the growing Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee “Community of Scholars” through disseminating findings, networking, making presentations, organizing or participating in national and local events, mentoring other Scholars, and actively and creatively supporting the success of the BRiCC Program.
