NCUSAR’s 2014 Washington, DC Summer Internship Program Commences


NCUSAR’s Washington, DC Summer Internship Program offers undergraduate and graduate students a ten-week professional, academic, and career opportunity internship in the Nation’s Capital.

The National Council on U.S.-Arab Relations’ 2014 Washington, DC Summer Internship Program began today with 25 student fellows admitted from a record number of applicants. For the next ten-weeks the students will spend their weekdays working at one of over a dozen Near East and Arab world related organizations in the nation’s capital, while also attending twice weekly evening seminar sessions designed to provide them with greater depth of knowledge about the Arab world, to underscore the cultural, economic, and political diversity of Arab states, and to explore the intricacies of Arab-U.S. relations. The students will also have weekly site visits around Washington where they will be provided a behind-the-scenes look at many of the central institutions of federal government, national security policymaking, international diplomacy, and international business. The program is an important component of the Council’s work to educate, train, and develop the present and emerging generation of U.S.-Arab relations leaders.
