Scholarship takes engineering student to Chile
University of Canterbury graduate and environmental engineer Madeline Furness shares her experience in Chile, thanks to the Prime Minister’s Scholarship to Latin America (PMSLA) programme.
Madeline first fell in love with Chile six years ago during an exchange. Since then, she was looking for an opportunity to return when she came across the PMSLA programme and returned for an internship with Engineers Without Borders.
“It’s an international network of engineers who dedicate their time creating technologies for developing communities. We also develop training for Chilean engineering students so that communities are empowered into the future, long after the engineers leave.”
Check out her experience below.
