SPSSI is currently not accepting applications for SPSSI UN/NGO Committee internships. A call for internship applications will be posted here and circulated by email to SPSSI members when the next opportunity to apply becomes available. Please note that interns must live within commuting distance of New York City, as committee meetings and activities regularly require in-person attendance.

Research that produces nothing but books will not suffice.
