From 2013 to 2016, the United States International Council on Disabilities (USICD) placed 24 interns at 17 international organizations in DC. Please join our newest cohort of interns in the summer of 2017!  USICD's internship program focuses on U.S. citizen youth with disabilities from across the country who aspire to careers in international development or foreign affairs.  

  The summer 2017 internship program will bring a group of talented U.S. citizen graduate students, recent graduates, and rising juniors and seniors with disabilities to Washington, DC, for nine weeks.  This will include a one-week training and orientation program followed by an eight-week internship at an international organization in the Washington, DC, area.  USICD will cover the cost of accessible housing during the program, reimburse round trip travel expenses from US locations to DC, and provide a limited stipend.  Participants in the summer 2017 program will need to be in DC from May 28 to July 29, 2017. These dates may be subject to change.
