Internship Program: Voice of America

Voice of America

Program Summary

The East Asia and Pacific Division of the Voice of America is now seeking applications for spring semester and summer volunteer internship positions. The 10 language services in our division broadcast in Burmese, Cantonese, Indonesian, Khmer, Korean, Laotian, Mandarin, Thai, Tibetan and Vietnamese. We are looking for language-qualified interns (English plus one of the Asian languages listed above) with a serious interest in communications or journalism. Knowledge of the East Asia and Pacific region and IT skills are a plus. Interns would assist a team of talented and energetic VOA correspondents and editors. Working as a member of a team, the intern has the opportunity to put language skills and journalistic interests to work, thereby gaining valuable practical experience in translation, writing, broadcasting and researching. Many of our services broadcast on both radio and television, and this allows the intern to become familiar with various aspects of the production process.


We do not offer financial compensation to our interns, but are happy to assist in evaluating interns who wish to receive academic credit for their time at VOA.
