Description

The U.S. Department of State Student Internship Program is accepting applications NOW for unpaid fall 2018 internships. The Bureau of Conflict and Stabilization Operations (CSO) invites students to consider a 10-week internship in the Washington DC bureau. Students who are studying conflict resolution, peacekeeping, and related foreign policy issues could be tomorrow’s diplomats - future diplomats whom the Department wants to hire. 

The State Department accepts numerous students each semester to work side by side with the staff on projects to address atrocity prevention, countering violent extremism, promoting defections from armed groups, defeating ISIS, preventing election violence, and supporting peace processes.  Interning in CSO provides an opportunity for hands-on government work experience, enhancing research and analytic skills, and valuable networking.
