Communications internship opportunity: Presidential Internship Program


The Program

Established in 1981, the Presidential Internship Program at The American University in Cairo (AUC) provides recent university graduates the opportunity to spend an academic year working at the highest levels of an international university, learn Arabic, and experience life in Cairo.

 Working at AUC

Interns work full-time in one of seven university offices, such as the Office of Communications, in which the intern writes for AUC’s daily email newsletter, researches and attends university events, and researches and writes longer articles for AUC’s magazine.


Program benefits include a monthly living stipend, faculty housing, private Arabic tutoring, subsidized trips around Cairo and Egypt, and more.


We have traditionally accepted a diverse array of students, including those with no background in Arabic or Middle Eastern Studies. Interested students should view the attached brochure and visit our website for more information on the program and how to apply. They can also visit our Facebook page and blog. The application is due January 15, 2015.
