Pak Embassy Internships Program

An Embassy announcement states: We are now accepting applications for the Summer of 2006
Application deadline: Summer Semester (May-August) – March 31, 2006

The internship program of the Embassy is designed to provide students with a unique opportunity of involvement in governmental affairs and to provide them with a general understanding of the Pakistan-US bilateral relations. The interns would have the opportunity of working directly with the Embassy diplomats. This first hand experience is highly valuable for those who are interested in international relations. Upon successful completion of the internship, participants will receive a certificate signed by the Ambassador and the Head of Chancery.
