Al-Shabaka hosts two annual programs for current students and junior analysts: a summer internship and Gaza mentorship.
Summer interns are current students or recent graduates from around the world who support Al-Shabaka's research and writing efforts on a range of topics related to Palestinian policy. 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.
Our Gaza mentorship program focuses specifically on nurturing junior/emerging analysts in Gaza under the guidance of Al-Shabaka staff, fellows, and advisors. The mentorship typically lasts for a six-month period and includes a modest stipend. Both programs provide interns with the opportunity to strengthen their policy analysis skills and gain insight into the workings of a Palestinian think tank.
Internship applications are generally accepted between February and March, with selections made in April. Gaza mentorship cycles will be announced on this page when available. For more information, please email [email protected]
