Hello from the US-UK Fulbright Commission! If you are not aware of us, Fulbright promotes educational exchange between the US and UK.
Every year, we offer students and recent graduates the opportunity to get involved with our work. There is a London-based opportunity we’d like to highlight for you:
Intern at the US-UK Fulbright Commission
The US-UK Fulbright Commission fosters mutual cultural understanding between the US and UK through educational exchange in two ways: through our awards programme and advisory service.
About our Internships: Interns join a small, but dynamic and highly-motivated team of staff. We try to ensure interns have a 50-50 balance between our day-to-day work and special projects they take ownership over. While the Fulbright Commission is happy to consider candidates from all educational backgrounds the positions are highly suitable for applicants from a range of majors and interests including: international relations, events management, communications, political science, international/higher education, student affairs, education and non-profit organisations. Internship applications are accepted throughout the year- autumn, spring and summer. Internships are unpaid and may be arranged on a full-time or part-time basis. For more information, see here.
We have two teams on the Commission where an intern can support our work:
• Advising: As an EducationUSA Centre, our student advising team is designated by the US Department of State as the official source of information on US higher education in the UK. We offer services and events providing UK students with information on the US admissions process. Our team also administers a programme that works specifically with UK state school students interested in studying in the US, known as the Sutton Trust US Programme.
• Awards: The Fulbright Awards Programme is one of the most prestigious and best-known educational exchange programmes in the world. The global Fulbright Programme is operating in over 150 countries, with over 300,000 alumni.
Interested in interning with us? To apply, students may email a CV and covering letter to firstname.lastname@example.org, with the subject line “Awards Internship” or “Advising Internship”. We will begin reviewing applications immediately on a rolling basis.
