Interested in traveling abroad with Beyond Borders? Reach out to our Service Learning Program Coordinator, Michelle, for information about our next available internship opportunities!

Application

Thank you for your interest in the Beyond Borders program at St. Jerome's University! You are signing up for a true adventure that will challenge you both personally and professionally. Please take the time to thoughtfully answer all questions below. 

 

Please note: Applications are due at 9:00 a.m. on Monday October 17, 2022. All written responses should be complete - detailed yet concise - with correct spelling and grammar.

 

Tips: 
- To avoid losing any of your responses, consider drafting your written responses in a separate document, then copy-and-paste them into this form when you are ready to submit.   
- When we ask you to 'describe a situation' keep your descriptions very brief, so as just to provide basic contextual information. Then, focus your response on the 'why' or 'how' questions that follow.
