Global Ties U.S. Internships
Internships are unpaid, volunteer positions; however, students may arrange to receive academic credit for their internship. Interns who complete their semester internship will receive a stipend to help defray internship-related expenses, including transportation costs to and from the Global Ties U.S. office.
Summer interns and other interns will learn valuable skills they can use in other employment settings. Internships are offered in the areas of communications, events, and public diplomacy. To apply, interested students must submit a cover letter, résumé or CV, and the contacts for at least two references. Application may be made through an online application form.
