The Martindale Student Associates Program has enabled a select group of juniors and seniors to explore business and economic issues in a foreign country each year since 1980. During the summer between their junior and senior year, a group of Student Associates spends 10 days or more in a foreign country, where they meet and interview business and government leaders and other policy-makers. Students and Martindale faculty advisers have traveled to Mexico, Canada, Argentina, France, Germany, England, the Czech Republic, Chile, Austria, Switzerland, Ireland, Hong Kong, Italy, Sweden, Spain, Hungary, and Panama.
After returning home, the students spend their senior year researching and writing a paper about business or economic issues pertaining to the country they visited. The papers are published annually in Perspectives on Business and Economics, the undergraduate journal of the Martindale Center, and distributed to over 1,500 people and libraries in the United States, Canada and parts of Europe.
The program is open to any qualified Lehigh junior. Applicants are chosen according to their academic records and the quality of essays they write about business and economic problems.
Application information: Scholars are nominated in mid-to-late January. Students with a grade point average of 3.4 or above are sent an invitation. Interested students must complete an essay and interview. All expenses associated with foreign and domestic travel are covered by the Martindale Center.
