About the Internship Program

Internship programs at Near East Foundation allow students to learn firsthand what it’s like to work at an international nongovernment organization (INGO). 

At NEF, numerous departments eagerly welcome interns and recognize the invaluable contributions they offer. Previously, interns have played pivotal roles in areas such as learning and partnerships, grants and contracts, programming, and communications. Join us to gain hands-on experience and make a meaningful impact!
