Six Georgia Tech graduate students, five from the Ivan Allen College of Liberal Arts, were among only 10 graduate students selected from across the United States to participate in the first annual Polish President Internship during May 24 to June 4, 2017.
The Presidential Internship is organized by the Chancellery of the President of the Republic of Poland, in cooperation with the Polish-Slavic Federal Credit Union and General Electric Poland.
One of the students, Jillian Stevens says: “We spent 10 days traveling the country to various political and cultural sites, met with General Electric (GE) leaders (representatives from GE Oil and Gas, GE Power, and GE Aviation), toured GE facilities, met with the Foreign Minister, the Minister of Economic Development, the Speaker of the Polish Senate, and also with consular and military employees at the U.S. Embassy in Warsaw, and more.”
