General Electric and the Office of the President of Poland have launched a program that offers a unique opportunity of a short summer visit to Poland under the sponsorship of the President of Poland.
Students are invited to take a part in this exciting experience that will be a combination of political, economic and cultural exchange as well as sightseeing. It includes visits to leading Polish and multinational firms located in Poland and meetings with Polish government officials and business leaders. The agenda includes also meeting President of Poland, Andrzej Duda, meetings with various government officials, tours in Polish factories, including GE Power, as well as sightseeing fascinating Polish cultural places. Through this experience, the organizers hope to promote and enhance students’ knowledge about Poland by providing ‘on-site” learning experiences.
The program is open to enrolled college undergraduate students that will be graduating in 2019, rising college seniors. The recipients must be US citizens or permanent residents and have a GPA of 3.5 out of 4.0 or higher.

Students are responsible to provide documentation of health insurance coverage and should be expected to secure pocket money for extra spending during their stay in Poland.
