UNFPA Internship Programme

Objectives of the Programme
The Internship Programme offers a small group of outstanding students the opportunity to acquire direct exposure to UNFPA operations. It is designed to complement development-oriented studies with practical experience in various aspects of technical assistance.

Interns gain an understanding of multilateral assistance in population activities and of how UNFPA operates by working under the supervision of a senior staff member at UNFPA Headquarters in New York. The backgrounds of the interns are matched with the needs of the organization.

Candidates for the internship programme are selected on a competitive basis. The following qualifications are required for consideration:

Expressed interest in the field of development
Written and spoken proficiency in English; fluency in French, Spanish or Arabic would be an asset
Ability to adapt to new environments and to establish and maintain good working relations with individuals of different cultural backgrounds.

Financial Aspects
Internships are offered on a non-remunerative basis. The costs connected with an intern's participation in the programme must be borne either by the nominating institution, which may provide the required financial assistance to its students, or by the student, who will have to meet living expenses as well as make his or her own arrangements for accommodation, travel, medical insurance and other requirements.
