UNHCR INTERNSHIP PROGRAMME – APPLY

Apply for UNHCR Internship Programme

DEADLINE: Varies

UNHCR is looking for talented, motivated and passionate individuals – like you – from around the world who bring knowledge, innovative thinking and different ideas to enhance our capacity to serve people of concern to the organization.

UNHCR’s Internship Programme offers eligible students and recent graduates the opportunity to gain experience in the humanitarian sector in an international environment, in line with their academic programme or future work in a field related to UNHCR’s mission. Internships are offered at various locations depending on the needs and capacity of offices to receive and supervise interns and provide them with meaningful assignments. An internship can begin at any time during the year and it normally lasts two to six months.

Eligibility

In order to be considered for an internship, candidates must meet the following criteria:

*Recent graduates are to be considered those persons who completed their studies within one year of applying for an internship with UNHCR.

Food and Local Transportation Allowance

Interns who do not receive financial support from an outside party will receive an allowance to support costs related to food and local transportation.

Interns should be ready to cover their own travel to the duty station as well as any additional costs above and beyond any allowance they may receive from UNHCR. It is the intern’s responsibility to arrange for a visa and to cover related costs. UNHCR can provide support with the required documents.

Medical insurance

Before the start of an internship with UNHCR, candidates are responsible for arranging medical insurance and for providing proof to UNHCR of valid medical insurance covering the period of the contract. UNHCR accepts no responsibility for any costs connected to medical insurance of interns, nor does the organization cover the costs for medical evacuation of interns. Interns working in locations where medical facilities are inadequate are advised to ensure that their medical insurance covers emergency medical evacuation. 

Furthermore, the health insurance selected by interns should provide the necessary geographical coverage for both accident and illness.
