The Institute has established a new scholarship fund in honor of Professor Edgard Coly to support African students and students planning to pursue careers in Africa. Professor Coly, who passed away in March, was from Senegal and taught courses in French language and African issues for nearly 20 years at MIIS.
Many of our graduates launch successful careers in the nation’s capital. This year our DC Career Week went virtual and continued to be a catalyst for our students as they made meaningful connections with employers and gained invaluable advice from professionals working in fields like international development, global security, trade, and localization.
Professor Max Troyer MAT ’09 explains Globe Multilingual Services, which offers students in the Institute’s Translation and Localization Management program the opportunity to work on real translation and localization projects for real clients in real time.
