US Dept of State 2015 Summer Student Internships

The U.S. Department of State 2015 Summer Student Internship Program (unpaid) is now accepting applications.

Click here (https://www.usajobs.gov/GetJob/ViewDetails/379670800) to go directly to USAJobs to start the Gateway to State online application. Please note that the deadline to submit completed applications is October 17, 2014.

Please note this is an earlier-than-usual deadline. We highly encourage you to complete and submit your application as soon as possible.

This program offers U.S. citizen undergraduate and graduate students the opportunity to participate in 10-week, unpaid internships that provide intensive educational and professional experience within the environment of America’s principle foreign affairs agency.

The unpaid internships are available at many of the over 270 U.S. embassies, consulates and missions to international organizations around the world, as well as at the Department of State in Washington, D.C. and other locations throughout the U.S. Participants gain first-hand, hands-on experience, and learn the realities of working in – and with – Foreign and Civil Service professionals who are at the forefront of America’s diplomatic efforts.

As an unpaid intern, you may have the opportunity to:

Participate in meetings with senior level U.S. government or foreign government officials;

Draft, edit, or contribute to cables, reports, communications, talking points, or other materials used by policy makers in furthering U.S. foreign policy objectives;

Help organize and support events, including international and/or multi-lateral meetings and conferences on critical global issues;

Contribute to the management and administration of the Department of State and America’s foreign policy; and

Engage directly with U.S. or foreign audiences to promote U.S. foreign policy and improve understanding of U.S. culture and society.

So consider spending your Summer 2015 with the U.S. Department of State, witnessing and participating in the formulation and implementation of U.S. foreign policy, working closely with the U.S. diplomats and civil servants who carry out America’s foreign policy initiatives. You’ll not only have an experience of a lifetime, you may even earn educational credit.*

* Applicants who are selected for a U.S. Department of State Student Internship Program (unpaid) can contact the selecting bureau, or the central Student Programs office, if they require further details about the program to support their request for academic credit.
