    Applicants will be contacted to set up an interview with the internship selection committee. This committee (composed of Gordon faculty and staff members) will determine whether the applicants will qualify for specific internship opportunities. Those who are not offered placements will receive assistance on exploring internship opportunities in the U.S. that best match their interests and abilities.

Interviews may be requested by partner organizations by telephone, Skype or for local organizations, in person.
