The Clements Center's Student Professional Development Fund provides UT undergraduate and graduate students the opportunity to intern at some of the top governmental and non-governmental organizations across the world by providing monetary support for unpaid positions. 

This summer, the Clements Center funded eight students: two graduate students and six undergraduate students.

Here's Amanda Long's story:

Arts Honors with a minor in European Studies and
International Security. This
