The Foreign National Student Internship Program is designed for students who are non-U.S. citizens seeking internships with U.S. Missions abroad. The program benefits both posts and students by providing the foreign national students with valuable educational experience in U.S. Missions and by assisting posts in accomplishing their mission goals. The purpose of the Foreign National Student Intern Program is to offer students the challenge of working in the field of foreign affairs in an American environment. There are no benefits attached to this internship and no compensation, nor any future employment rights. The program is open to all students and provides the opportunity to work full time for a short period (not more than three months) in the U.S. Embassy to gain experience in various areas of foreign policy and management.
We appreciate your interest in pursuing an academic internship with the U.S. Mission to Portugal, but note that – due to circumstances surrounding COVID-19 – we are unable to extend offers at this time. We encourage you to regularly check this site for updated information, and we hope to have an opportunity to work with you as soon as circumstances allow.
