The Eric Stein Fund for International Experience supports internships for business students through an endowment given to the university by Eric Stein ’69. The fund has enabled students in the Sigmund Weis School of Business to intern with companies around the globe, including firms in Australia, the Czech Republic, France, England, and Brazil
For some students, it would be impossible to travel abroad without the financial assistance provided by the Eric Stein Fund.
The fund has:
- Enabled a student to travel to Uganda, where she interned at a savings and loans trust bank and led workshops that taught villagers the importance of saving money and developing sustainable sources of income.
- Supported a student internship at Dow Jones in London. During the internship, the student wrote an article that was published in The Wall Street Journal.
