SPRING 2016 INTERNSHIP

Deadline: The deadline for Spring 2016 applications is December 1, 2015.

Summary:
COHA is now accepting Spring 2016 Internship Applications. For more than 30 years, the Council on Hemispheric Affairs (COHA), a major tax-exempt, nonprofit, and nonpartisan national research and information organization, has offered internships in Washington, D.C. in the fields of U.S., Latin American, and Canadian relations. These internships provide practical, entry-level experience regarding a variety of political, economic, diplomatic, and trade issues. They also provide young scholars with excellent exposure to the policy making process. COHA seeks highly qualified undergraduate and graduate students as well as those who have already earned degrees. During its existence, nearly 1,000 successful candidates have interned in COHA’s Washington office. If you are interested in this opportunity, please send COHA a completed internship application form, cover letter, resume, and a brief writing sample (two pages). In your cover letter, make sure that you explain why you are interested in interning for COHA and how you would contribute to the organization. Also arrange for an official or unofficial transcript (photocopies are acceptable) and two letters of recommendation to be mailed to our office. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis, but positions tend to be filled quickly; it is advised that you apply several months prior to your desired starting date. Applications may be addressed to our Intern Coordinator and sent via: Fax: (202) 223-4979 E-mail: internships@coha.org
