Are you a college student interested in learning more about the foreign policy field? Do you know someone who is? If so, consider applying to the Franklin Williams internship at CFR. CFR seeks talented and motivated students focusing on international relations, political science, or a related field, with strong research, writing, and editing skills as well as some previous administrative experience. In both Washington and New York CFR seeks interns who can commit sixteen hours per week to the internship. There are openings both in New York and Washington, D.C. You can view the internship posting in its entirety at CFR’s career opportunities page.
What kind of work is involved? The intern will be involved with tasks such as program coordination, substantive and business writing, research, and budget management. In addition, the intern will be encouraged to attend the CFR’s extensive meetings programs and participate in informal training designed to enhance management and leadership skills. CFR interns learn about U.S. foreign policy and global affairs. They gain an understanding of how a think tank operates and what it accomplishes. In addition, internships are a valuable way for students to test out the foreign policy field and decide if it suits their interests.
The Franklin Williams Internship, named after the late Ambassador Franklin H. Williams, has been established for undergraduate and graduate students who have a serious interest in international relations. The internship is designed to develop the intern’s knowledge and leadership abilities as a foundation for future work in the foreign policy arena. Ambassador Williams had a long career of public service, including serving as the former U.S. ambassador to Ghana, as well as the former chairman of the Board of Trustees of Lincoln University, one of the country’s historical African American colleges. He was also a director of the Council on Foreign Relations, where he made special efforts to encourage the nomination of African Americans to membership.
