INTERNSHIPS IN THE DEVELOPMENT DEPARTMENT-OVERVIEW
[The development department at the Middle East Institute manages the nonprofit's relationships with donors, organizes fundraising dinners, and writes grants on behalf of the Institute.]
The Development Department advances the mission of the Middle East Institute through innovative and project-oriented fundraising and activities designed to build the capacity of the Institute. Interns assigned to the Development Department share responsibility for identifying potential individual, foundation, and corporate donors, cultivating relationships, and managing data and records.
This internship is an opportunity to learn highly demanded skills in nonprofit fundraising and maintaining donor relationships. Candidates needn't have a background in the Middle East; but should have an interest in business and/or related fields. Ideal candidates are strong writers; creative and resourceful; and should have an eye for detail
Preferred skills include database management experience, Adobe InDesign, Photoshop, and PowerPoint.
THE INTERNSHIP PROGRAM AT THE MIDDLE EAST INSTITUTE
The Leadership Development Internship Program at the Middle East Institute is designed to provide students or recent graduates considering a career in a Middle East related field with hands-on experience in a Washington-based, nonprofit organization that focuses exclusively on the Middle East. Interns obtain guidance, experience, and exposure to the Washington policy and scholarly community while developing professional skills with interns from all over the world.
Interns represent more than half of MEI's staff. As a result, you will be presented with exciting opportunities to do real work that has real outcomes. There is no filing or coffee-running in this job. Instead, you will immerse yourself in issues relating to the Middle East, and be expected to complete substantative assignments with personal guidance from your supervisor. All internships at the Middle East Institute are unpaid, though the Leadership Development Internship Program is packed with other benefits.
