[PAST EVENT] Application Deadline: National Council on U.S.-Arab Relations Fellowships

Friday, March 1st 2013
Washington, D.C. Summer Internship Program. June 3, 2013 - August 9, 2013.
Full Description
The National Council's Summer Internship Program offers professional work experiences combined with twice weekly evening seminars that bring academic experts and experienced foreign policy practitioners to meet with the interns in candid off-the-record discussions and freewheeling question and answer sessions.

Our goals are:
(1) to provide a realistic Washington, D.C. work experience that will pave the way to career development;
(2) to provide interns with first-hand experience behind-the-scenes of the foreign policy analysis and advocacy process in Washington, D.C.;
(3) to provide a strong academic component dealing with U.S. political, economic, and cultural relations with Arabia and the Gulf region;
(4) to help participants begin the process of career networking by introducing them to working professionals in government, business, journalism, and NGOs; and,
(5) to highlight the wide range of career opportunities awaiting those who aspire to work in the field of U.S.-Arab relations as well as to provide counseling on the graduate school and fellowship application processes.

As complements to the program, interns will also be exposed to D.C. in a less formal manner via films, cultural events, embassy and museum visits, off-the-record conversations with former diplomats, group dinners, and suggestions for exploring the sights and sounds of Washington, D.C. This allows students not only to experience living and working in the city but also encourages them to appreciate the cultural diversity of the urban environment and the exciting cultural, educational, and recreational opportunities available in the Nation's Capital.

A $125 non-refundable program fee must be submitted with the application. This fee helps to defray the costs of administering the summer internship program and the accompanying seminar presentations. Internship program participants, upon successful fulfillment of the program's academic and internship requirements, receive a $1,000 fellowship stipend.

This opportunity is open to undergraduate and graduate students.
