Internship Program

Interns at the Humphrey Program become valued members of the Program community, both by supporting and enriching individual Fellows’ experiences, as well as by assisting in the administration and documentation of the program. Through the program, interns have the opportunity to further develop their capacity for intercultural understanding and communication, professional etiquette and writing skills, collaborative and organizational skills, and knowledge of how an international exchange program operates.

Interns further support the program through participation in initiatives such as planning and implementing events, joining and helping to document certain events and excursions, contributing to Program publications, website, and social media, and other projects. Projects are designed to help students practice specific professional skills they wish to develop, and to build on skills and interests they already have. This is a rare opportunity to participate in one of the U.S. Department of State’s most prestigious international exchange programs—right here on campus.
