How Did You Hear About FSD?

To ensure that the Foundation for Sustainable Development is able to protect the health and safety of its interns and volunteers overseas, FSD requires that an applicant have the physical and mental capacity, with or without a medical accommodation, to perform the essential functions of an intern for the full length of commitment without unreasonable disruption due to health problems. Because of the nature of the countries in which FSD serves, the scope of medical care available in those countries, and the conditions under which interns live and work, FSD may not be able to accommodate certain medical or psychiatric conditions.

Stable conditions as well as medication regimen (both medical and psychiatric) can be appropriate for FSD interns and are considered during the application evaluation. Recent changes in these conditions or medication regimens are evaluated on an individual basis and may require a period of proven stability prior to FSD internship.
