The Paid East-West Center Internships in Washington, D.C seeks interns each semester who are interested in gaining a first-hand training experience in a US-Asia research and education organization in Washington, D.C. Internships are open to students and recent graduates; graduate students are particularly encouraged to apply. They do not sponsor visas for interns, so applicants should be already authorized for such a position through US citizenship/permanent residency or existing visas sponsored by a university or other valid third party. Stipends are available for qualified applicants.

The following proven skillsets are beneficial (though not required):

  • Strong Excel and spreadsheet skills and the ability to work with large amounts of data
  • Experience with tracking multiple media sources for new stories on a particular topic
  • Development of infographics for use online and in print form in support of various research, policy dialogue, publication, and outreach projects
  • Conducting long-term, in-depth research on assigned topics
  • Experience with economic data is a plus
  • Asian language reading fluency are pluses.

Interns all participate in a variety of activities that support Center programs, including work in research, writing, and program support. Moreover, interns also have the opportunity to network with experts in their chosen fields through public forums held at the Center and at external organizations.

Interns are involved in many aspects of the Center’s work, including:

  • Researching and writing articles on contemporary US-Asia relations issues for the Asia Matters for America initiative (AsiaMattersforAmerica.org)
  • Writing briefs of events at the Center and external organizations
  • Tracking foreign policy events and issue areas in the media in Asia and Washington
  • Research assistance to staff and visiting fellows, many of whom are well-known experts in their fields
  • Creating content for the Center’s website, blog, or other outlets
  • Support for public events

Interns are occasionally called on to assist in administrative duties. Preferred computer skills include Microsoft Office, including Excel, and graphics and publications software. Please make a special note if you have specialized computer skills as noted above, including familiarity with audio and video recording and post-processing.

Stipends may be available for internships, depending on funding. All internships can be offered for university credits if your school permits. Internship hours are flexible, but the center ask that interns commit to a minimum of 20 hours per week (40 is preferred for summer interns).
