Because we recognize that future leaders in democracy and governance are currently in Universities, USICES provides an avenue for them to have hands-on experience working in the field. In line with this, we offer year-round internships with stipends to students or recent graduates interested in USICES’s work. Interns can learn how USICES contribute to countries engaged in developing or maintaining effective democratic practices. We welcome agreements with partner universities in the United States and around the world. All internship opportunities are listed on our employment page.
