Mentoring the next generation of leaders in international affairs is one of our top priorities.  We offer two paid summer internships for minority college students at the U.S. Department of State.  We partner with the American Foreign Service Association and the Association of Black American Ambassadors to administer these internships.  The internship offers students the opportunity to work on important foreign policy issues.  Previous interns have been placed on the China and Nigeria Desk.


The stipend covers living expenses and other costs. The internship application form for the U.S. Department of State internships program can be found at  Applications for summer internships are due by November 1 of each year.
