The World Affairs Council internship program is an extension of the mission to educate and inspire members of our community to know the world. Its principal purpose is to provide practical experience to students in the subject matter of global affairs awareness and the methods employed to achieve those ends.

World Affairs Council internship openings are unpaid positions that may, but are not required to be, coordinated with a student’s parent institution for academic credit.

Council staff members view our interns as an important part of the Council’s work and will make every effort to integrate them into all aspects of the Council’s operations.

These documents provide an application, information and guidelines for the administration of the World Affairs Council Internship Program.
