Youth in International Development and Foreign Affairs Internship Program

January 05, 2016

The summer 2016 Youth in International Development and Foreign Affairs internship program is still open for applications until January 12, 2016. 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 who intend to pursue careers in international development or foreign affairs.  The summer 2016 internship program will bring a group of talented U.S. citizen graduate students, recent graduates, and rising college juniors and seniors with disabilities from across the U.S. 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 29 to July 30, 2016. These dates may be subject to change.
