The Center for International Policy (CIP) works to make a peaceful, just and sustainable world the central pursuit of U.S. foreign policy. We promote cooperation, transparency and accountability in the international relations of the United States. Through research and advocacy, our programs offer common sense solutions to address the most urgent threats to our planet: war, corruption, inequality and climate change.
The Center for International Policy has received a generous gift to endow our internship program in memory of former Ambassador Robert White and his wife, Maryanne White. During his distinguished career in the Foreign Service, he was the U.S. ambassador to Paraguay and El Salvador, as well as earlier postings primarily in Latin America. He was known worldwide for his outspoken and unrelenting promotion of democracy and human rights. In 1989, Ambassador White became president of the Center for International Policy. During his 20 years at CIP, he took a special interest in mentoring our interns.
Applicants for internships should submit application materials for any of the internships listed at any time. We begin reviewing applications in November for the spring semester (January-May), in March for the summer semester (May-August), and in June for the fall semester (August-December) and continue on a rolling basis. Start dates, end dates, and weekly schedules are flexible. Interns will be provided with a stipend during their internship.
