IOM Internships

IOM is the leading intergovernmental organization working with migration around the world. They work closely with governments, NGOs, and other intergovernmental organizations to develop and implement programs, conduct research, and recommend policies surrounding the areas of migration and development, facilitating migration, regulating migration, and forced migration.

IOM provides primarily paid internships for senior undergraduate students, graduate students, recent master’s-level graduates who completed their degree less than a year prior to starting the internship, and other individuals sponsored by government agencies, non-governmental organizations, and academic institutions. Interns must be between ages 19 and 36 and should have a working knowledge of English, French, and/or Spanish.

Internships last from 2 to 9 months, depending on the intern’s availability. Interns are given a monthly living stipend unless otherwise arranged. They can work in a country office in their home country or in an overseas office but must arrange their own travel plans and visa. Learn more on the official website.
