Atlantic Council Young Global Professionals Program Internship – with options this spring

At the Atlantic Council, we advance our mission of “shaping the global future together” by taking on global, generational challenges – those the next generation is inheriting.

To meet this moment, we are committed to fostering the next generation of international affairs professionals. To this end, we are relaunching our internship program as a world-class, paid Young Global Professionals (YGP) Program. This new initiative is designed to provide exceptional young people with in-depth exposure to international affairs and an opportunity to play an active role in shaping real-world solutions to global challenges.

We’re different than most think tank teams, and we like it that way! The Council is building a movement. We hope you’ll be a part of it. If this appeals to you, read on about how to join our fast-paced, global team of intellectual entrepreneurs.

All the details here. DEADLINE is November 18 for the spring, but they also have summer opportunities due on March.

Considering a Winter Term Internship for Credit?

Here are the steps to follow if you want to participate in a Winter Term internship AND receive credit for it. (Please note: Sophomores through Super Seniors who have been enrolled for Fall ’20 are eligible to earn Winter Term credit through an internship.)

STEP 1: Have your resume approved by a CCI Peer Career Advisor (PCA). No appointment necessary. See go/PCAs for days/times. Please note you must visit a PCA before Dec. 2 if your resume has not been previously approved; PCAs will be on break the week of Thanksgiving.

STEP 2: Secure your internship. See go/findinternships for tips or make an appointment with a CCI advisor or visit a PCA for help.

STEP 3: Find a Middlebury faculty member to serve as your academic sponsor. See FAQ at go/WTinternships for more info on academic sponsors. Because we are approaching the Dec. 2 deadline, students should work on this step even before they secure their internship.

STEP 4: Write your personal statement for your application for credit including 3 scholarly sources (see FAQ at go/WTinternships).

STEP 5: Download the Internship Agreement Form, read it, and initial all sections.

STEP 6: Create an Experience in Handshake – this is your application for credit. (Find it at go/Handshake>Career Center>Experiences>Create an Experience.) Select Winter Term Application for Credit/Funding and Winter Term 2021 and answer all questions marked with an asterisk. Immediately after submitting, attach your personal statement, your CCI-approved resume, and a signed Internship Agreement. Several funding grants are available for students on financial aid on a first-come, first-served basis (you will be asked questions about applying for funding as you complete the Funding application).

Internship credit is approved on a rolling basis up until December 2. Apply now!

Information, FAQs, Timeline & Checklist here!

Extensions of a day or two (but not more) may be allowed in rare circumstances out of your control (e.g. waiting for a firm internship offer, waiting for answer from faculty academic sponsor) only for students who contact Cheryl Whitney Lower or another CCI advisor before the December 2 deadline. Plan ahead!
