Women's Foreign Policy Group 2014 Spring Internship Program
WFPG believes that it is crucial to ensure that women's voices are heard and women leaders are fully engaged on policy decisions. At WFPG, we advance women's leadership and highlight their contributions through international issues and mentoring programs. The organization convenes professionals from across disciplines and broadens the constituency for international affairs. WFPG offers internships year-round and hires three to five interns to assist them each semester.
Special Benefits: Exposure to mid and senior-level professionals from across the international affairs field and opportunities to earn more about international issues, leadership development and the operations of a small nonprofit. WFPG events and co-sponsored events are a great opportunity to get a feel for the way international issues are discussed, and to mingle with past and current women leaders. WFPG interns also have the privilege to attend other events in DC at the State Department, think tanks, and embassies.
Compensation: Part-time internships are unpaid or for college credit. Full-time interns who commit to 3.5 months during the school year or 3 months during the summer are eligible for a $1,000 stipend upon completion of the internship.
