The Fulbright Commission offers unpaid internships to current students and recent graduates. Our internships offer a unique opportunity for individuals interested in international education (as well as students in other fields) 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.
Applicants may express their interest in taking part in an internship by emailing a CV and covering letter to the email address 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.
There are three different options in terms of internship opportunities at the Fulbright Commission. We seek full and part time interns with the Advisory Service (projects related to advising UK students about US study), Awards Programme (helping to administer and promote scholarships for US and UK grantees and applicants), and Alumni/Fundraising efforts. If you are interested in any of these opportunities with Fulbright, please contact us: firstname.lastname@example.org
