It may still be freezing out, but summer will be here before you know it. And that means deadlines for summer programs are fast approaching. And what better way to spend the summer than earning your Digital Literacy Certificate through the Kahlert Initiative on Technology?
Spend the summer building an app and future-proofing your career by learning about blockchain and cryptocurrency. There are two wonderful programs to choose from, both of which offer a chance to travel, make new friends, and network with employers while completing more than half of the requirements for a Digital Literacy Certificate.
Itching to do a study abroad? Check out the Global Cyber Summer program, which takes students to Italy and Spain. Explore Rome, Florence, and Barcelona while gaining hybrid skills in marketing and statistical analysis or design and programming. The first 20 students accepted will get a minimum $2,000 scholarship toward their study abroad program, so apply soon. Applications close Tuesday, Feb. 15.
For those who don’t want to venture quite so far from home, the Domestic Cyber Summer program is a great option. This 10-week program is limited to 30 students and splits time between the Eccles School and the Howard University campus in Washington, D.C. This tight-knit group pays the standard tuition rate for 12 credit hours and gets to participate in program-sponsored activities at no extra cost. Applications for the domestic program are due Friday, Feb. 25.
Is your summer already booked, but you still want to be part of the Kahlert Initiative on Technology? You can be a Kahlert Scholar as long as you register for one KIT class per semester. These scholars have access to special scholarships to cover the cost of the program, and internships with Kahlert partners such as Adobe, eBay, and Pluralsight.
