The Intern Program
The Academy seeks an individual interested in American foreign policy and the practice of diplomacy, as well as in the inner workings of a nonprofit organization. Because the Academy is small, the internships offer students a unique opportunity to become an integral part of the organization’s core team. A student or a recent graduate with continuing education goals and interest in the Foreign Service will find this internship particularly rewarding, as he/she will be able to interact with our distinguished members, assist with the distribution of their published articles through social media, learn about the Foreign Service and gain insights into the workings of how foreign policy is carried out. As an integral part of the Program, the intern will attend meetings and events with some of the most distinguished retired American ambassadors. The Intern will be involved in: managing all the Academy’s social media accounts, event and meeting planning and implementation, preparing minutes of Academy meetings, communicating with Academy members, updating content for the Academy website, managing contact lists, and supporting the professional staff. The Program and Finance Assistant will provide detailed guidance and constructive critique to maximize the learning experience. The intern will devote 20 to 40 hours a week depending on his/her availability. The candidate must be able to commit to the entire fall term. Applicants who cannot do so will not be considered. Application due date is July 31, 2019.
The Academy is a nonprofit organization. Participation in the Program is without compensation or any expectation of employment at the conclusion of the Program. However, academic credit availability reliant upon school requirements.
We will review applications on a rolling basis so candidates are encouraged to apply early.
