New York (TADIAS) – The Ethiopian Global Initiative (EGI), a Cambridge, Massachusetts- based nonprofit organization that promotes youth led projects in Ethiopia, has announced the launch of its application process for Summer 2013 participants of U.S. College Students for Ethiopia (USCSE) internship program.

The internship provides college students from the United States an opportunity to work with organizations that are headquartered in Ethiopia.

“USCSE also engages U.S. college students in a service project designed to involve local high school and college students in civic engagement and empowering themselves,” the organization said in a press release. “USCSE’s ability to provide unmatched internships in Ethiopia for college students from the United States has made it an exciting opportunity that has garnered a lot of interest in Ethiopia and the United States.”

“We are very excited to operate USCSE for the third consecutive year,” Samuel Gebru, the program’s founder said in a statement. “EGI functions based on the generosity of donors. These crucial contributions provide a minimal budget that we must maximize. We have increased the value of USCSE and look forward securing the necessary support to expand and develop.”
