The Madeleine Korbel Albright Institute for Global Affairs (MKAI) aims to stimulate crossdisciplinary engagement with global affairs at Wellesley and beyond. To that end, we are excited to launch a two-year pilot (AY 2024-25 and AY 2025-26) Albright Faculty Affiliates program designed to provide a platform for Wellesley faculty across all disciplines to connect, build community, and collaborate with other faculty and students toward advancing high-quality research that addresses global challenges. In partnership with the Wagner Centers for Wellesley in the World, the Albright Faculty Affiliates program will foster an inclusive and productive environment, bridging the gap between scientific inquiry and societal impact. Over the course of the two pilot years, we will be evaluating the features of the program and adjusting them in consultation with the Albright Faculty Advisory Committee and the Provost’s Office as needed to benefit the faculty, students, the Institute, and the College.

I think the only way to truly be a "global citizen" is to trace and experience other cultures...the internship I did abroad prepared me to be a global citizen by allowing me to work alongside people from a range of nationalities. —Albright Fellow '14

Recognition of the value of experiential learning is at the heart of the Albright Institute’s mission. Albright Fellows are fully funded to participate in internships where they can apply what they have learned in the classroom in a real world setting. Some of these internships are self-identified, while others are reserved annually for Albright Fellows. The Albright Institute also manages a number of international internships open to any Wellesley College student. 

Albright Reserved Internships (internships open only to Albright Fellows) include:
