It is our pleasure to announce that GE and the Office of the President of Poland have launched the 2019 U.S. Student Culture, Economic and Diplomacy Immersion Trip to Poland. This program offers a unique opportunity of a short summer visit to Poland under the sponsorship of the President of Poland.
We would like to extend an invitation to take a part in this exciting experience that will be a combination of political, economic and cultural exchange as well as sightseeing. It includes visits to leading Polish and multinational firms located in Poland and meetings with Polish government officials and business leaders. The agenda also includes meeting the President of Poland, Andrzej Duda, meetings with various government officials, tours in Polish factories, including GE Power, as well as sightseeing fascinating Polish cultural places. Through this experience, we would like to promote and enhance students’ knowledge about Poland by providing ‘on-site” learning experiences.
The program is open to enrolled college undergraduate students that will be graduating in 2020, rising college seniors. The recipients must be US citizens or permanent residents and have a GPA of 3.0 out of 4.0 or higher. We are looking for 10 beneficiaries who will arrive in Poland on June 5, 2019 and depart Poland on June 16, 2018. Flight tickets, accommodations and all activities while in Poland will be covered under the partnership with GE and under the sponsorship of the President of Poland. Students are responsible to provide documentation of health insurance coverage and should be expected to secure pocket money for extra spending during their stay in Poland.
Interested students should submit a video response and answer application questions by April 11th, to http://bit.ly/2019GEPoland. The video response question has unlimited prep time and 5 minutes to answer the video question of “Please tell us why you should be selected for this international travel program to Poland”. While 5 minutes is available for your video response, please note that you may use as little or as much time necessary to provide a complete answer.
Please contact Tony Denhart, Tony.Denhart@ge.com, with any questions.
