United Nations Internship Programme

Rolling Deadline

Unpaid Internship: The United Nations has no provision in its budget to pay interns.  Therefore, all costs connected with internships must be borne by the students concerned or by their sponsoring institutions or governments.

The United Nations provides opportunities for students enrolled in a graduate programme to undertake an internship at its Headquarters in New York, Geneva, Vienna, Nairobi, Addis Ababa, Bangkok, Beirut, Santiago, Arusha and The Hague.
Eligible candidates interested in doing an internship at the United Nations Headquarters in New York or any of the mentioned countries can apply. The objective of the Internship Programme is threefold:

  • To provide a framework by which graduate and under graduate students from diverse academic backgrounds may be assigned to United Nations Offices where their educational experience can be enhanced through practical work assignments.
  • To expose them to the work of the United Nations.
  • To provide UN offices with the assistance of highly qualified students specialized in various professional fields.
