United Nations Foundation Internships

The United Nations Foundation (UNF) offers unpaid full and part-time internships. Our interns participate in a variety of activities and perform a number of tasks in support of the department for which they work. The number and nature of internships depends on the needs of the various departments.

The Objectives of the Internship Program

  • To expose students to the work of the UN and to encourage them to consider careers in the UN or UN related causes;
  • To provide a framework by which individuals from diverse academic backgrounds can utilize their theoretical knowledge in practical work assignments; and
  • To aid the UNF/BWF in achieving its mission.
