PRESIDENTIAL INTERNSHIP PROGRAM
The American University in Cairo
Established in 1981, the Presidential Internship Program at The American University in Cairo (AUC) provides recent university graduates the opportunity to spend an academic year working at the highest levels of an international university, learn Arabic, and experience life in Cairo.
Working at AUC
Interns work full-time in one of seven university offices, such as the Office of the President and Office of Communications, which provide opportunities for professional development, mentoring, and substantive work. At the Research Institute for a Sustainable Environment, I recently returned from conducting fieldwork for agricultural and community development projects in desert oasis communities.
Program benefits include a monthly living stipend, faculty housing, private Arabic tutoring, subsidized trips around Cairo and Egypt, and more.
We have traditionally accepted a diverse array of students, including those with no background in Arabic or Middle Eastern Studies.

The application is due January 15, 2015. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
