Evans

The Erik T. Woolley Fellowship for International Internships was established by Dr. Paul O. Woolley, Jr. in 2001 in honor and memory of his son, Erik.  Woolley Fellowships are awarded to Washington and Lee University students on an annual basis to support an educational internship experience overseas, usually during the summer. With an expectation that students must prepare themselves for an ever deeper global engagement, regardless of their field of study or career interests, the goal of an international internship will be to foster exposure to and experience in both international professional practice and cultural understanding.
