World Affairs Council Internship Opportunities

This just in from the World Affairs Council.

Greetings from the World Affairs Council!

We thought some of your students or advisees may be interested in the following internship opportunity:

Here at the World Affairs Council in Seattle, we have quarterly unpaid internships for up to 16 internationally-minded students in the Puget Sound Community.

Our interns commit 12-15 hours per week during our office business hours, which are 9am-5pm Monday through Friday for 10-12 weeks (3 - 6 months). Our interns gain valuable hands on skills and perform basic office tasks plus special projects, which vary depending on the department. In the past, special projects have included accompanying high-level international delegates to their meetings in Seattle, writing grants, and co-creating international curriculum for local schools. Whether your interest is in applying what you have learned in your international affairs class, tweaking your office skills and resume, or finding out about the inner workings of a not-for-profit, there are lots of opportunities for you at the World Affairs Council! And what’s more, after you complete your internship, you will receive a complementary one year membership plus receive monthly newsletters with job, intern, and volunteer opportunities.

The World Affairs Council in Seattle has six departments which include Administration, Development, Membership, International Visitor Program, Community Programs, and Global Classroom. If you are interested in applying, please take some time to review the website at and take a closer look each department. You may submit your resume and cover letter to Ms. Alyse Cato at
