Applications for the 2017-18 academic year are due at midnight on May 19th, 2017.


Background:

Launched in September of 2007, the Burkle Center Internship Program offers UCLA students direct exposure to international relations and related disciplines. From major events and conferences to research initiatives and student-oriented outreach programs, the Burkle Center offers a variety of avenues for interested and engaged students to get involved. The Program is designed to offer students experience, exposure, and networking opportunities.


Eligibility:

Internships are open to current UCLA undergraduate students, and lasts throughout the academic year (fall through spring). Preference is given to juniors and seniors, but the Center has hosted sophomores in the past.


Hours and Expectations:

Interns must commit to a minimum of 6 work hours per week. Hours are flexible and structured in consideration of academic commitments. Students generally work 3 hours at the Burkle Center's intern office and 3 hours at home. These work hours include event staffing or outreach activities. The Burkle Center places a strong emphasis on initiative and teamwork. Interns are expected to maintain a professional demeanor and appearance at all times.


Internship Tasks Include:

• Event facilitation
• Graphic/web design
• Outreach coordination
• Research assistance

All interns participate in outreach and event production and assist the Center with short- and long-term projects and its daily needs.

While individual assignments are made in consultation with the intern, the final determination is made based on the needs of the Center. Interns are encouraged to attend Center events, which provide good opportunities to network with experts in the field.
