Internships in Washington D.C.

The internships are offered 3 times a year (winter/spring, summer and fall), in which approximately 70 interns are selected by over 40 departments/areas within the General Secretariat of the OAS to participate in each session.

Every week interns participate in informative meetings about the Organization, where they learn about its pillars, mission and projects. Visits to other international organizations in the area (such as IDB, World Bank, PAHO, etc) are also part of the internship program, as well as the opportunity to participate in the MOAS/PC or Model OAS that simulates the Permanant council. These activities are mandatory for all participants and it allows them to gain skills and experience in a multicultural environment.

Although internships are unpaid, they are highly competitive and in order to be selected the applicant must meet the requirements and submit all required documentation.
