The AECT Leadership Internship Program is designed to stimulate and identify future leadership in AECT. As an AECT member, you may recognize these leadership attributes in a graduate student or early professional and are encouraged to sponsor one (1) applicant for the program each year.
If you would like to sponsor an applicant, please provide them with your contact information to enter into the application. If you have been asked to sponsor an applicant, please wait for the application system to notify you with the instructions on how to submit a sponsorship letter.
You must be a current member of AECT in order to sponsor an applicant, and your letter should address the following questions:
How long have you known the applicant and in what capacity?
Why do you think this applicant would benefit from being selected for an AECT Leadership Internship position?
How would AECT benefit from having this person go through the Leadership Internship Program?
Note that applicants are only allowed one sponsor and, therefore, one sponsorship letter. If an institution or organization wishes to collectively sponsor an applicant, the letter should originate from a current AECT member and indicate the support within the letter.
REMINDER: Applications for the 2017 AECT Leadership Internship Program are due by June 5, 2017. This includes a sponsor letter in support of your application. Please allow enough time for your sponsor to submit this letter by the due date, June 5.
