UNICEF Global Citizenship Fellowships
In January, eight Global Citizenship Fellows will begin work with the U.S. Fund for UNICEF Program and Strategic Partnerships Division in the following locations: Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, New York City, San Francisco, and Washington D.C. The fellowship is a highly selective, full-time, 13-month program that prepares diverse, committed, and globally minded individuals for effective leadership in public service. By helping to establish UNICEF’s domestic imprint, the fellows will exemplify the concept of the global citizen as someone who understands global interconnectivity; respects and values diversity; has the ability to challenge injustice and inequalities; and takes action in a way that is personally meaningful. Fellows will aim to inspire their communities to take action for the world’s children by engaging local groups and cultivating awareness.
The application period for the 2013 Fellowships has ended. If you have submitted an application and have been selected for an interview, we will contact you shortly. Applications will be accepted for the 2014 Fellowships beginning in the fall of 2013.
Internships at the U.S. Fund for UNICEF
A limited number of unpaid internship opportunities are available in our New York City National Headquarters for current university students. Interns support the U.S. Fund in a variety of areas including fundraising, marketing, and communications as well as general research and administration. The U.S. Fund for UNICEF does not have overseas internships nor does it provide financial support for interns. All successful applicants are expected to make their own arrangements for travel, lodging and living expenses during the internship period.
The U.S. Fund recruits interns on an as needed basis; however the majority of opportunities generally coincide with the Fall, Spring and Summer semester university calendar.
