NCDE Access to Exchange Externship

Website: NCDE Access to Exchange Externship


The National Clearinghouse on Disability and Exchange (NCDE) is an ongoing project to increase the participation of people with disabilities in all types of International education opportunities through our informational resources. We are offering a paid opportunity for participants or alumni of both inbound and outbound international exchange programs to spearhead their very own community outreach activity.

Lead a one-day symposium on studying abroad. Publish an accessibility guide to your favorite country. Chronicle your international experience in a blog. It’s your show. How will you make your mark?

The NCDE will work virtually with the selected externs to build on their activity for the most effective outreach.
