2013-2014 Fall-Winter Internship Program
Do you want to spend a semester in the middle of the decision-making capitol of the world? Are you interested in meeting with international dignitaries and helping to advance character driven leadership, playing a role in finding solutions to the world’s most pressing humanitarian issues, and working to effect change in both domestic and foreign policy? If so, an internship at the McCain Institute for International Leadership could provide substantive, rewarding, and real-world experience. Based in Washington, DC, the McCain Institute for International Leadership at Arizona State University is seeking interns for Fall-Winter 2013-2014. Students from all universities, along with recent graduates, are welcome to intern at our organization.
Interns are an integral part of the McCain Institute for International Leadership. Past program participants have not been sidelined, but instead instrumental in the work done here at the Institute: designing courses on leadership and ethics, redirecting digital marketing strategies, developing communication plans, creating solutions to humans rights issues in the United States and beyond, and more. We are currently accepting applications from all disciplines for our internship program in the following areas:
· Leadership and Ethics
· Media and Communications
· Events, Programming, and Operations
· A/V and Political Videography
· National Security
· Computer and Decision Science
· Humanitarian Action
· Human Rights and Freedoms
Are you a computer science major who likes visualization and modeling projects, and would be interested in working in DC’s Decision Theater? Are you a business or communications major that would like to develop and help grow our brand with targeted media campaign? Do you want to help find an innovative way to tackle Human Trafficking both in the United States and abroad? The McCain Institute offers students from all academic backgrounds the ability to explore and expand on their interests and passions, contributing new ideas, initiatives, and actions plans to the Institute that will provide them not only with meaningful experience, but skills that will aid them in future studies and professional development.
About The McCain Institute Program
Each year the McCain Institute for International Leadership gives students and recent graduates the opportunity to explore and research issues critical to national security, human freedom, and democracy. We actively promote leadership and decision-making amongst our interns and encourage young leaders to be inquisitive, open to spirited discussion with staff and faculty, and be actively involved in the daily operations of the McCain Institute. The contributions of our interns are substantive, and will play an integral role in shaping real policy. This experience will be a launching point for their future careers in Foreign Service, international relations, and work in the humanitarian arena.
In return, we will strive to mentor our interns and introduce them to international policymakers in Washington, DC. Additionally, interns will take part in weekly activities in the DC area, including foreign policy debates, Congressional hearings, and the opportunity to use our state of the art Decision Theater for simulations, modeling, and war games.
Please submit a resume, cover letter explaining your area of interest, brief writing sample and one letter of recommendation to the Internship Coordinator, Ms. Rebecca Schneider at: email@example.com. The deadline for Fall-Winter applications is August 16th and all internships are unpaid. If you are a student in the Washington, DC area – we will offer part time positions and help you seek the appropriate credit for your work.
