  2. There is at least one Project Coordinator interested to serve as Mentor for the Applicant.

The first condition can be waived only with the support of at least two Board Members who will prepare a Mini Board Resolution.


Factors influencing the decision

The Factors to consider before making a decision whether to accept an Applicant as intern are the following:

  1. Country of origin and ethnicity; Future Worlds Center is a multi-cultural, multi-national organization;
