Over the years the Minda de Gunzburg Center for European Studies (CES) has offered Harvard College students invaluable professional and cultural experiences through its an enriching program of internships in some of the highest European public service offices, private enterprises, and research institutions. These opportunities have enabled students to expand horizons while learning and honing new skills in an international environment, spurred academic inquiry on European issues, and built a lifelong appreciation for European cultures.

Chinaza Asiegbu (History, Secondary in African Studies and French Citation, 2022) received a Summer Internship Grant from CES in 2020 to conduct a virtual internship at the United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization in Paris. She also participated in the Europe in Washington Workshop on Democracy and Transatlantic Relations, made possible by a generous grant from Elizabeth Sherwood-Randall (AB ’81) who currently serves as White House Homeland Security Adviser.
