Dear Wendy

This is Justin Harford, Program Coordinator from MIUSA. I am sending you an email to let you know about a brand-new fellowship <http://https:/www.miusa.org/news/2019/ncdefellowship> that we are offering to people with and without disabilities with lots of energy and a strong desire to see more PWDs traveling with a purpose. Please share widely with your networks. People with disabilities are strongly encouraged to apply.

Are you ready to open doors to increase diversity in study abroad and international exchange? The National Clearinghouse on Disability and Exchange (NCDE) is excited to announce the launch of the Access to Exchange Fellowship! We are seeking college students and recent graduates who are interested in a career in international education, and who wish to help make international exchange programs more diverse and inclusive! A successful applicant should have an understanding of disability culture and be passionate about increasing access to international education for people with disabilities.

The Access to Exchange Fellow will spend May - August 2019 working with the NCDE team towards the mission of increasing participation of people with disabilities in overseas programs. The fellow will be based in Eugene, Oregon at the Mobility International USA (MIUSA) office.

Find more details about the Access to Exchange Fellowship by accessing the press release<https://www.miusa.org/news/2019/ncdefellowship> on our website.

People with and without disabilities are encouraged to apply. Feel free to send any questions to clearinghouse at miusa.org<mailto:clearinghouse at miusa.org>. The application form along with accompanying letters of recommendation must be submitted by the deadline indicated on the press release. We will reach out to finalists to schedule interviews by the end of February.
