Internships with the European Parliament Liaison Office



Complement your studies in International & Global Affairs with a genuinely international internship.

The European Parliament invites college graduates (US citizens only) to apply for a full-time internship in its Washington, DC office from mid-September to mid-December 2014, with the possibility of a two month extension in Brussels and Strasbourg. Candidates are not required to be currently enrolled in school to be considered for the internship.
