The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations leads international efforts to defeat hunger and to achieve food security for all and make sure that people have regular access to enough high-quality food to lead active, healthy lives.
With over 194 member states, FAO works in over 130 countries worldwide. We believe that everyone can play a part in ending hunger.
The internship program aims to attract talented young women and men who are strongly motivated to share their new perspectives, innovative ideas and latest research experience in FAO’s domains.
The programme provides a learning opportunity to the participants to supplement their academic knowledge with a practical work assignment in a field related to the work of FAO.
Through the FAO internship experience, interns will contribute to the UN Sustainable Development Goals and FAO Strategic Objectives to achieve Zero Hunger World – SDG2.
Interns should demonstrate teamwork and communication skills and be able to demonstrate building effective relationships.
FAO pays a monthly stipend to interns if they are not sponsored by sending universities or other entities.
The deadline is on 1 January 2021.
Candidates should be enrolled in an undergraduate, graduate degree programme or be recent graduates.
Candidates must specialize in a field relevant to the mission and work of FAO. Working knowledge of at least one FAO language (Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Russian or Spanish). Knowledge of a second FAO language will be considered an asset. Applicants should be nationals of FAO Member Nations. Candidates should be aged between 21 and 30.
