Past Programs


Illinois Institute of Technology

The Illinois Institute of Technology offered a Summer Engineering Research Immersion Program during summer 2016 led by world-renowned faculty members.  Participants were brought out of the classroom and into real-world settings to address some of the most pressing engineering challenges of our time.  Participants worked side-by-side with faculty members on a specific research project and were also able to experience cultural activities in beautiful Chicago, Illinois, the 3rd largest city in the United States.

University of Akron - International Campaign Fellowship

The University of Akron’s nationally known Ray C. Bliss Institute of Applied Politics offered a 4-week International Campaign Fellows (ICF) intensive learning opportunity as a fall 2016 GET opportunity.  This unique program combines a timely “Campaign Battleground” course with real-world experience and research gained from working on either the Democratic or Republican presidential campaign in Ohio - the state that determines the outcome of the U.S. Presidential election.  ICF participants engage in grassroots campaigning and campaign events, lectures, and meetings to learn about all aspects of campaign politics.
ICF is designed to expose learners to the election campaign rigor and to provide a firsthand glimpse into this historical Presidential election.  

Dates: October 10 – November 11 2016
