 Youth in International Development and Foreign Affairs internship program

 The summer 2017 Youth in International Development and Foreign Affairs internship program will close for applications on January 10, 2017. 

 The United States International Council on Disabilities (USICD) launched its internship program in 2013.  USICD's internship program focuses on U.S. citizen youth with disabilities who intend to pursue careers in international development or foreign affairs.  

  The summer 2017 internship program will bring a group of talented U.S. citizen graduate students, recent graduates, and rising college juniors and seniors with disabilities from across the U.S. to Washington, DC, for nine weeks. This will include a one-week training and orientation program followed by an eight-week internship at an international organization in the Washington, DC, area. USICD will cover the cost of accessible shared dormitory housing during the program, reimburse travel expenses between DC and US locations, and provide a limited stipend.  Interns will need to be in DC from May 28 to July 29, 2017

 Our internship program would not be possible without the funding support of the Mitsubishi Electric America Foundation, for which we are grateful.

 The application deadline for USICD's summer 2017 internship program is January 10, 2017.

 USICD works to promote the rights and full participation of persons with disabilities through global engagement and United States foreign affairs. USICD bridges the U.S. disability community with the global disability rights movement. Learn more about USICD and our work at http://www.usicd.org.
