View Online

The National Council on U.S.-Arab Relations’ 2022 Washington, DC Summer Internship Program offers undergraduate and graduate students a ten-week professional, academic, and career opportunity internship with an organization in the nation’s capital. The program features a demanding mix of professional involvement, intellectual challenge, career exploration, and cross-cultural encounters designed to provide students with a richand varied experience.
Professional work experience: Students are placed with one of over a dozen Near East and Arab region-related organizations with offices in Washington, D.C., where they are expected to work 35-40 hours per week under the direct supervision of their host organizations. Internships are unpaid.Academic seminars: Students take part in twice-weekly seminar sessions designed to provide them with greater depth of knowledge about the Arab region, to underscore the cultural, economic, and political diversity of Arab states, and to explore the intricacies of Arab-U.S. relations. There will be a particular emphasis, though not exclusively, on Arabia and the Gulf.Site visits: Students receive a behind-the-scenes look at many of the central institutions of the federal government, national security policymaking, international diplomacy, and international business.

About the Program

The National Council’s Summer Internship Program offers professional work experiences combined with twice-weekly evening seminars that bring academic specialists and experienced foreign policy practitioners to meet with students in candid off-the-record discussions and dynamic question-and-answer sessions. Its objectives are:
to provide a realistic work experience, which may include some remote work, in a Washington, D.C.-based office that will provide pathways for career development;to offer interns exposure to the foreign policy analysis and advocacy processes in the nation’s capital;to incorporate a strong academic component focusing on U.S. political, economic, and cultural relations with Arabia and the Gulf region;to help participants begin the process of career networking by introducing them to working professionals in government, business, journalism, and NGOs; and,to highlight the wide range of career opportunities awaiting those who aspire to work in the field of U.S.-Arab relations, as well as to provide counseling on graduate school and fellowship application processes.As complements to the program, interns will also be exposed to Washington, D.C., in a less formal manner via films, cultural events, embassy and museum visits, off-the-record conversations with former diplomats, group dinners, and suggestions for exploring the sights and sounds of the nation’s capital. This allows students to not only experience working in the city but also encourages them to appreciate the experience of living in a diverse urban environment, and to take advantage of the exciting cultural, educational, and recreational opportunities available in D.C.

COVID-19 and Public Health Considerations

At present, the National Council intends to administer the 2022 Washington, DC Summer Internship Program with as many in-person elements as possible. At the sole discretion of the Council, some or all aspects of the program could be shifted to online administration. Accepted participants will be notified as soon as information is available regarding the current status of the program.

Participants in the program will be asked to submit proof of full COVID-19 vaccination if they receive an invitation to join the program. Due to the nature of many of the lectures and site visits, participants must agree to wear an acceptable face covering when requested by the National Council or others involved in the program. Participants must also agree to follow other public health-related measures that may arise to continue taking part in the program.


The program is administered by National Council professionals and staff, together with more than two dozen of America’s foremost scholars and leading foreign affairs practitioners. The programs, activities, and functions represented by the organizations and corporations that provide the professional work experience component of the program are varied. Included among placements in recent years have been educational development and exchange organizations, bimonthly and quarterly publications, humanitarian relief groups, broadcasting networks, area studies centers, international transportation companies, foreign trade associations, peace and justice advocacy groups, and a variety of non-governmental organizations.

Application Fee and Fellowship Stipend
