Stanford students work, learn about everyday life in Asia
What if you had the opportunity to work at a leading independent media company in China, or behind-the-scenes on a popular television show in Korea?
The 25 students who participated this past summer in Stanford’s East Asia Internship Program gained hands-on experience at major media organizations, consulting firms, university hospitals, law offices, museums, and more. They also learned about language, everyday life, and culture, and made lasting friendships and professional connections.
The internship program is co-sponsored by the Walter H. Shorenstein Asia-Pacific Research Center (Shorenstein APARC) and the Division of International, Comparative and Area Studies.
Members of the internship selection committee included:
- Jean Oi, (faculty director), Stanford China Program, Shorenstein APARC
- Richard Dasher, US-Asia Technology Management Center
- Karen Eggleston, Asia Health Policy Program, Shorenstein APARC
- Kenji Kushida, Japan Studies Program, Shorenstein APARC
- Daniel Sneider, Shorenstein APARC
- David Straub, Korean Studies Program, Shorenstein APARC
