Youth in International Development and Foreign Affairs Internship Program

Applications Due 1-10-2017

The summer 2017 Youth in International Development and Foreign Affairs internship program is now open for applications until January 10, 2017.

The United States International Council on Disabilities (USICD) launched its internship program in 2013. USICD's internship program focuses on U.S. citizen youth with disabilities from across the country who intend to pursue careers in international development or foreign affairs.

The summer 2017 internship program will bring a group of talented U.S. citizen graduate students, recent graduates, and rising 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, area. USICD will cover the cost of accessible housing during the program, reimburse travel expenses to and from DC, and provide a limited stipend. It is anticipated that the program will run from May 28 to July 29, 2017. These dates may be subject to change.
