Fulbright Commission

Looking for a student(s) with a background/interest in politics, international affairs, or communications, though we would consider other majors. Interns would be involved with the administration of the programme; the duties vary depending on time of year, but may include: event planning, assistance coordinating interview schedules, awards promotion, and alumni activities, along with general office work. We look for interns with strong communication skills, attention to detail, and an ability to work well both independently and within a small team. Additionally, interns should be interested in international education and/or exchange.

The American Red Cross

The American Red Cross exists to provide compassionate care to those in need. The American Red Cross shelters, feeds and provides emotional support to victims of disasters; supplies about 40 percent of the nation's blood; teaches skills that save lives; provides international humanitarian aid; and supports military members and their families. The Red Cross is a not-for-profit organization that depends on volunteers and the generosity of the American public to perform its mission.

The overall aim of the program is to attract a pool of diverse, skilled, enthusiastic young professionals and provide them with an opportunity to build a long-term, substantive life-long relationship with the Red Cross.

The Government Relations Internship is an unpaid internship where candidates must be enrolled in a degree program at the time of the internship. The opportunity is based in Washington, DC at our National Headquarters beginning in January 2015.
