Edina Interns 101: Who Runs the Program?

In many ways, we are “running” our own program here now – recruiting our own Interns, handling most of the day-to-day needs of the Interns, etc.

Potential future changes…

  • An application for the Normandale PTO to become its own J-1 Visa Sponsor (eliminating the need for a partner like Amity) has been submitted.
  • This initiative started in ‘05 as a result of some difficulty with securing a stable Sponsor relationship.
  • The French Education Fund (FEF) was established during that time. The fund is a pool of parent-donated money required by the U.S. government to ensure that we are a stable enough entity to run our program year-over-year.
