The Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars is the living, national memorial to President Wilson established by Congress in 1968 and headquartered in Washington, D.C. It is a nonpartisan institution, supported by public and private funds, engaged in the study of national and world affairs. The Wilson Center establishes and maintains a neutral forum for free, open and informed dialogue. The Center commemorates the ideals and concerns of Woodrow Wilson by providing a link between the world of ideas and the world of policy and fostering research, study, discussion, and collaboration among a full spectrum of individuals concerned with policy and scholarship in national and world affairs.
The Wilson Center's Latin American Program offers internships for students with an interest in, coursework related to, and/or experience working on Latin American issues.
These internships are designed to provide the individuals selected with the opportunity for practical experience in an environment that successfully mixes academic study with public policy. The intern will gain valuable experience in a variety of projects such as conference organization, library and internet research, assistance with the preparation of publications, and administrative assignments in support of Center activities. Internships also provide opportunities to attend events within the Wilson Center and around Washington.
Successful applicants should have strong research and/or administrative skills, be detail-oriented, be able to work independently and collectively as part of group, and be currently enrolled in an undergraduate/graduate degree program, a recent graduate (within the last year), and/or have been accepted to enter an advanced degree program. Language ability in Spanish or Portuguese is preferred.
The Latin American Program will be hiring interns for the summer on a full-time (40 hours per week) basis.
To apply, send your resume, a letter describing how you could contribute to our team and what you are looking to gain from the internship, and a writing sample. All materials should be submitted together by April 15 to Trisha Fields at firstname.lastname@example.org. Applicants should expect this internship to be unpaid although funding may become available for a small salary.
The Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 requires employers to hire only individuals who are eligible to work in the United States. An individual selected for a paid internship will be expected to present proper evidence establishing employability prior to being appointed.
The Wilson Center is an equal opportunity employer and follows equal opportunity employment guidelines in the selection of its interns.
