Subject: Announcing Bulldogs in Baghdad

Dear Yale Undergraduate:

On behalf of Undergraduate Career Services, the Yale College Dean's Office and the Association of Yale Alumni (AYA,) we are pleased to announce the newest addition to Yale's international summer opportunities, Bulldogs in Baghdad.

This ten-week program (June 1 - August 10) will give you the rare opportunity to shadow American contractors working with the U.S. Government in Iraq full-time, as well a variety of co-curricular activities designed to enrich your summer experience.

A variety of internship positions will be available for students of all academic disciplines and career interests. Positions are currently available through Yale affiliates working for Bechtel, Halliburton, Allied Shipping and Logistics, Northrop Grumman, GE and Blackwater Security.

Students will enjoy accommodations with either an American family or, in some cases, with four to six other Yalies in suites at the Hotel Palestine in the heart of historic Baghdad. A typical weekend in the program might include:

• A day trip excursion to the Holy City of Najaf,
• Browsing the vast archaeological collection of the newly-renovated Baghdad Museum,
• Touring to the famous Al-Aqsa Bazaar for local wares and delicacies,
• Dining with Coalition soldiers from the Second Infantry Division at Camp Liberty,
• A scenic boat tour on the Tigris river with your fellow Yalies,
• Sampling the city's vibrant nightlife, and much more!

Successful applicants can expect to join a dynamic and challenging professional environment, where you will build an understanding of Middle Eastern culture as well as developing economic infrastructure, energy policy, and government contracting.

Bulldogs in Baghdad will provide you with comprehensive training and support, including a nine-day PRE-SUMMER ORIENTATION provided by AKI Security Associates, Inc. (http://www.aki.co.nz), as well as ongoing project guidance to ensure you have the best possible experience.

APPLICATION:
Applications will be available at the information session.

INTERESTED? WANT TO LEARN MORE?
We encourage you to attend our INFORMATION SESSION about the program:
4:00PM Friday, Feb. 17 in LC 101.

Best Regards,
-David Quint, UCS
