The American Embassy Budapest is offering an internship from April to May of 2019 for young Hungarian citizens (university students and recent graduates) from underserved communities.
Organizers welcome the application of members of minority groups historically underrepresented in the field of foreign policy and those with financial need. The program values varied backgrounds, including ethnic, racial, social, and geographic diversity.
The internship is a full-time (8 hours a day) commitment. Interns will learn about foreign policy and how an embassy works, and will work on projects assigned to them by the Public Affairs and the Political/Economic Sections of the Embassy with the help of a mentor. They will present on their experience and on their project at the end of the internship. Interns will be put through an intensive English language course for the duration of the program. They will receive a stipend and the embassy will pay for their monthly transportation pass and accommodation in Budapest if need be. Applicants should be in their senior year of college or be recent graduates, and have basic or mid-level English language skills.
Please apply for the program with a CV and a letter of introduction and motivation (200 to 500 words) via email to firstname.lastname@example.org February 18, 2019.
