2017 Department of State Student Internship Program - Puerto Rico


Joshua Glow, originally from Tampa, FL, is a proud recipient of the Department of State Student Internship Program award. This internship provided him the opportunity to work in Port-au-Prince, Haiti for a week teaching English and technology basics to orphans with a NGO called Pennies for Haiti.

He worked closely with ONS throughout the application process. "ONS and USF opened my eyes to look for any opportunity that could assist or sharpen my focus in pursuit of my career goals," he says.

Joshua attributes his success to his determination. "If I had to attribute two characteristics to my success, they would be drive and open-mindedness," he says. "I knew that this summer I wanted to make a difference and was open to any opportunity in which I could explore a new country and culture."

In the future, he plans to attend graduate school in the Washington D.C. area, with an emphasis on security studies or international development in West Africa.

Congratulations to Joshua on winning an internship through the Department of State Student Internship Program!
