THIRD CALL FOR APPLICANTS
Youth in International Development and Foreign Affairs internship program
The summer 2015 Youth in International Development and Foreign Affairs internship program remains open for applications until January 28, 2015.
The United States International Council on Disabilities (USICD) launched its internship program in 2013. USICD's internship program is geared for youth with disabilities from across the U.S. who are interested in careers in international development or foreign affairs.
The summer 2015 internship program will bring a group of talented graduate students, recent graduates, and rising juniors and seniors with disabilities 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 fully-accessible housing during the program, reimburse travel expenses to and from DC, and provide a limited stipend. It is anticipated that the program will run from May 24 to July 25, 2015. These dates may be subject to change.
Applicants must be U.S. citizens, must identify as a person with a disability, and must be either a student or a recent graduate with either a bachelor's degree or a graduate degree ("recent graduates" graduated between spring 2014 and spring 2015). Applications are accepted from candidates up to age 30. In limited circumstances (for example, U.S. veterans), some candidates may be eligible up to age 35.

Please disseminate this announcement among students and recent graduates who may be interested. If you represent an international organization in the Washington, DC, metropolitan area interested in hosting an intern from June 1 to July 24, 2015, please communicate with internships at usicd.org.
USICD thanks the Mitsubishi Electric America Foundation for their support for this initiative.
Application deadline for USICD's summer 2015 internship program is January 28, 2015.
