Undergraduate and Graduate Opportunities
The World Affairs Council of Atlanta, a non-profit, non-partisan organization affiliated with the Washington, D.C.-based World Affairs Councils of America and Georgia State University, anticipates accepting graduate and undergraduate students as interns each academic semester. Many Council interns are part of the research team working on the Robinson Country Intelligence Index (RCII), while others are part of the program and membership team working on events and membership operations. All RCII interns should have a strong interest in political-economic leadership, country risk, global and data literacy, and, more broadly, the major global issues of the 21st century.
Candidates should also have excellent computer skills and be highly motivated and creative, with the ability to work on multiple tasks. Expectations include a commitment of a minimum of 16 hours per week (20 preferred). The internship is unpaid, but those accepted may be eligible for course credit as determined by their academic department. If interested, please email a cover letter, transcripts, and two letters of recommendation to the email address below. Applications can be made at any time, but review of applications for each semester begins as follows: Summer—March 15; Fall—August 1; Spring— October 15.
