The Utah Council for Citizen Diplomacy (UCCD) is currently seeking a student who can commit to a paid, academic-year length fellowship that would fulfill university credits in either an internship course or independent study course.
During the fall semester, this fellow will have the opportunity to work directly on U.S. Department of State exchange programs, work with community leaders through UCCD’s International Exchange Programs, learn the expectations and requirements for implementing citizen diplomacy and international exchange programs, and develop skills and knowledge on how to plan, implement, and host professional meetings and cultural opportunities.
During spring semester, the fellow will continue exchange program implementation while having the opportunity to design, implement, and manage a substantive project in consultation with UCCD aligned with the interests of UCCD and the student. This project would be something the fellow could add to their portfolio and professional resume. Suggested projects could include but is not limited to a special event, research, outreach, or youth or school engagement.
Additionally, pending budget availability, the fellow will be invited to attend a national conference in Washington D.C. with either the World Affairs Council of America (November 2021) or the Global Ties U.S. National Meeting (March 2022) — travel expenses covered by UCCD. Both conferences create an opportunity for the fellow to engage and network with international nonprofits from around the country, think tanks in the D.C. area, and U.S. Department of State representatives.
