The United Nations Foundation (UNF) offers unpaid full and part-time internships. Our interns participate in a variety of activities and perform a number of tasks in support of the department for which they work. The number and nature of internships depends on the needs of the various departments.
The Objectives of the Internship Program
Applicants must be enrolled in a degree-granting program during the internship or must be a recent graduate (within 8 months of graduation) of a college or university with a demonstrated interest in the UN and international development.
We encourage you to visit this page regularly as internship openings are posted regularly. The United Nations Foundation accepts internship applications for posted positions only. Applicants must submit a current resume and cover letter online. Only those applications submitted online will be considered.
