U.S.-CAEF interns engage in invaluable networking opportunities and extensive interactions with experts and leaders from the public, private, and nonprofit sectors.

Regional Summer Internship Program

Since 2009, the Foundation has operated the Regional Summer Internship Program, which is made available on a competitive basis to a limited number of Student Fellows completing their second year of university study. Both AUCA and KIMEP University require their business and economics students to undertake a formal internship towards the end of their third year of study. The Summer Regional Internship Program, which includes orientation and support for the interns, is intended as an opportunity for participants to become familiar with the business environment, enhance their skills and gain practical experience that will help them make informed choices about their degree-required internships in the following year.

International Capstone Internship Program

The International Capstone Internship Program, launched in 2011, is a four-month work-study program in the U.S. designed to complement four years of university study. Student Fellows who successfully complete their studies and graduate from AUCA or KIMEP University are eligible to apply for the competitive international internship. The Foundation’s Interns take part in an established and success-proven program operated by The Washington Center (www.twc.edu) in Washington, DC. In addition to the vocational and educational components of the internship, Interns benefit from joining a diverse group of peers from the U.S. and other countries in their program.
