This summer 25 HESN internships are available in USAID's Washington D.C offices and remotely. Each student may apply for up to three positions. The internships cover a wide range of topics, from global health to sustainability efforts, and provide a wide range of skill-building opportunities such as data analysis, monitoring and evaluation, marketing, and communications.
While these internships are unpaid, SEAD is planning to provide small stipends (amount TBD) to eligible students and students may be able to seek funding from sources around campus to cover summer costs.
Eligibility: Duke undergraduate, graduate, and post-doctoral students are invited to apply; students who will have recently graduated are also eligible. Interns must be U.S. citizens and obtain security clearance for in-person internships. If security clearance is not granted before the start of the internship, the intern may participate virtually. Please note that dual citizens are unlikely to obtain security clearance in time to participate in the program.
Deadline: Application materials (see full list) must be submitted by 5pm on November 10th through USAID's online form accompanied by an email to USAID. However, in order to receive a Letter of Approval (see more) from SEAD, students must make the request to SEAD by 12pm on November 9th.
