Hubert Scholars Program for Internships in Public Service
The purpose of the Hubert Scholars Program is to help those in need of food, medical attention or spiritual fulfillment and encourage among Agnes Scott College students a personal commitment to helping others and lifelong careers of public service. Hubert Scholars gain valuable experience in humanitarian service and addressing issues of social injustice and inequity.
Applicants choose or design an internship with a public service focus that takes place either in the United States or abroad. They coordinate with a faculty sponsor to develop the academic component of the for-credit internship, including readings, assignments and measurable learning objectives. They submit a detailed budget with projected costs. Student applicants will be interviewed by a committee and those selected receive up to $3,000 for related expenses.
Examples of Past Hubert Scholar Internships
Past Hubert Scholars have combined experiential learning and service to humanity in a wide variety of ways. One pre-medical student worked in village health clinics and organized HIV/AIDS awareness seminars in Tanzania. A political science and women’s studies major created a library and taught research skills through the Harpswell Foundation, whose mission is to empower a new generation of women leaders in Cambodia. A public health major interned at an eye clinic in Guatemala. Another returned to her middle school in Oakland, California to expand a mentoring program for young girls, which included workshops on empowerment, career choices, and living a healthy lifestyle. An international relations major studied and implemented techniques to narrow the educational gap between refugee girls and their American-born peers at the Decatur-based Global Village School.
