One is in Bhutan. Another is working in Burma. A few are in India and many other countries across the world. They’re among the 20 graduate students in this summer’s Global Impact internship program, sponsored by the William Davidson Institute,  a non-profit research and educational institute at the University of Michigan. The students are working for companies, nonprofits, startup ventures and NGOs. They’re conducting market research for a malaria test, developing solar products, creating an impact assessment strategy and investigating barriers to success for entrepreneurs. You can follow them on their blog.

Watch them describe their plans in this video:
