Created 60 years ago in the aftermath of WWII, the US-UK Fulbright Commission plays a key role in facilitating transatlantic cultural understanding and educational exchange through our prestigious scholarship programme, as well as our student advisory service. Our work to create globally-minded ambassadors impacts public diplomacy around the world, as well as the lives of the individuals who benefit from our programmes and services.
The Fulbright Commission offers unpaid internships to current students and recent graduates. Our internships offer a unique opportunity for individuals interested in international education to learn about the field while gaining work experience and taking responsibility for challenging projects.
Internships can be arranged through partnerships with US universities or internship companies or by the applicant individually.
Individual applicants may express their interest in completing an internship by emailing a CV and covering letter to the appropriate email address (depending on your interest area) listed below.
The covering letter should describe your dates and hours of availability, details of your visa status and legal right to work in the UK (for example, on a Tier 4 student visa, UK citizenship or the BUNAC Intern in Britain visa for students and recent graduates), previous experience, overseas work and study experience and knowledge of the US/UK educational systems. Internship applications will be kept on file, and qualified applicants will be invited for an interview when positions are available.
