Al-Shabaka hosts an annual summer intern to support research and writing efforts on a range of topics related to Palestinian policy. Our program provides interns with the opportunity to strengthen their policy analysis skills and gain insight into the workings of a Palestinian think tank.
The internship program typically ranges from 10-12 weeks during the summer months and includes a modest stipend. We are also open to coordinating with universities to ensure the provision of academic credit. Interns work remotely and can be based anywhere across the globe.
Internship applications are generally accepted between February and March, with selections made in April. For more information, please email [email protected]
