An internship experience with the CCWA is an invaluable opportunity to be immersed in the dynamics of the professional non-profit community of central Ohio, while establishing worthwhile connections and developing a deep appreciation and knowledge for global affairs.

Internship opportunities at the Council may vary due to a constantly evolving agenda. Responsibilities depend on the prospective intern’s skills, abilities and interests and the needs of the staff members seeking their support. All positions are unpaid, but the hours are flexible and often earn course credit. The Council will consider applicants who are studying at the undergraduate collegiate level. 

The Council offers three cycles for internships, each with its own deadline for applications:

  • Spring 2021 (Jan – Apr): deadline to apply is November 1, 2020 
  • Summer 2021 (May – Aug): deadline to apply is March 15, 2021
