Development Internship Program

Under the PROLAW Development Internship Program, PROLAW staff help students to find internship opportunities with organizations which carry out rule of law and development work. Students should aim to submit applications in January with internships usually beginning in May, after completion of the coursework phase of PROLAW. The internships last between ten weeks to six months. Students may be granted extensions to their thesis deadlines in order to accommodate internship scheduling.  PROLAW has in the past helped place students at the International Fund for Agricultural Development and the Food and Agriculture Organization in Rome, the International Criminal Tribunal in The Hague and the European Public Law Organization in Athens. Students may apply to PROLAW for a scholarship grant if an internship that is approved under this Program is unpaid. There are several grants available in amounts up to $2,000. Scholarships are awarded on a competitive basis as well as based on the financial needs of each applicant. Any external sponsoring of the internship will be deducted from the amount awarded. Awards will only be made to students who have confirmed internship offerings.
