Prepare to Become a Global Leader.
Become a U.S. Foreign Service Intern.
Prepare now if you’re a college sophomore or junior interested in travel abroad, international affairs, and public service. Discover life as a U.S. diplomat and experience the inner workings of diplomacy.
The U.S. Department of State’s U.S. Foreign Service Internship Program (USFSIP) is a merit- and needs-based opportunity for undergraduate college students from communities traditionally underrepresented in the Foreign Service. This paid internship runs over 10-weeks for two consecutive summers and provides you the opportunity to learn new skills and experience challenging situations that will prepare you to become a global leader, build strong networks, and promote U.S. national security and values.
The first summer is spent at the Department’s headquarters in Washington, DC, and the second at a U.S. embassy or consulate overseas. The program also includes funds for housing and travel support, as well as professional development training and mentorship from current U.S. diplomats.
The call for applications is announced at the end of August, but NOW is the time to prepare your account on USAJOBS and to upload up your resume, so that you are READY when the application opens. You can learn more about USFSIP and sign up for email notifications to be notified when the application period is open. You can also contact one of our regional Diplomats in Residence (DIR) for more information on this program and all U.S. Department of State careers, internships, and fellowships.
