The summer 2015 Youth in International Development and Foreign Affairs internship program call for applicants has been extended to 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time on Wednesday, February 4, 2015 (2:00 p.m. Pacific Time). USICD's internship program focuses on youth with disabilities from across the U.S. who are interested in international development and foreign affairs careers.
The summer 2015 internship program will bring a group of talented graduate students, recent graduates, and rising college juniors and seniors with disabilities to Washington, DC, for nine weeks. This will include a one-week training and orientation program followed by an eight-week internship at an international organization in the Washington, DC, metropolitan area. USICD will cover the cost of fully-accessible housing during the nine-week program, reimburse travel expenses to and from DC, and provide a limited stipend.
The program encourages applications from graduate students and from recent graduates who have a master's or other graduate degree, or a law degree, or a bachelor's degree. The program also accepts applications from rising juniors and seniors in college. Most applicants should be age 30 or younger. In limited circumstances (especially U.S. veterans) candidates may remain eligible until age 35. It is anticipated that interns will need to be in DC from May 24 to July 25, 2015. These dates may be subject to change.
