Come hear about an amazing paid opportunity to work this summer in one of the fastest growing economies in Asia! Middlebury alum Khalid Quadir ’89—CEO and founding partner of Brummer & Partners Asset Management Limited (which manages Frontier Fund, the first private equity fund in Bangladesh) and founder of bracNet, a Bangladesh wireless broadband operator—is offering a unique summer internship opportunity for three Middlebury students to experience first-hand the challenges and rewards of working in a rapidly developing country. The paid internships are sponsored by the Anwarul Quadir Foundation (AQF), which seeks to promote understanding of economic and social progress in Bangladesh. The internships will take place in the city of Dhaka and are open to rising sophomores, juniors, and seniors, with a strong preference for students not originally from the region to ensure a true cross-cultural experience. This internship is funded with a CCI award of $5,000 to cover airfare, in-country travel, and living expenses, and will last a minimum of eight weeks. AQF has identified several possible organizations with which students can choose to intern, depending upon their specific interests. Industries include telecommunications, banking, transportation, manufacturing, software, food production, social enterprise, and others, all described in the internship posting in Handshake. Come hear from one of last year’s participants about this unique opportunity.
