Internships at the UN Mission of the Republic of the Marshall Islands
Each fall, to assist with the most active period of the UN General Assembly, the RMI UN Mission works with a small group of full-time expert interns, who assist the Mission's staff on matters of policy analysis of key focal issues within the UN (and in particular, the plenary and committees of the General Assembly). Successful applicants will be capable of independent work and initiative, with a demonstrated capacity for complex or creative intellectual analysis, and an ability to work in a time-sensitive environment. A background or interest in Pacific regional issues, sustainable development, environmental policy (including science, law or planning), and/or international law or political affairs are helpful. Graduate students or recent graduates are preferred.
While internships are unpaid, the Mission can assist in the facilitation of academic credit.
A very limited number of part-time internships may be obtained by locally-based students throughout the year.
Applications are accepted on a rolling basis. Due to the high volume of applications, we may not be able to respond to each individual request.
The Mission has also worked with Marshallese college students, recent graduates and young professionals, who have worked closely with the Mission staff on important policy issues. While this opportunity may be contingent upon funding, Marshallese nationals are strongly urged to contact the Mission for more information.
