American University in Cairo Presidential Internship Program

Established in 1981, the Presidential Internship Program at the American University in Cairo (AUC) provides recent university graduates who are American citizens or permanent residents the opportunity to work at the highest levels of an international university, experience life in Cairo and learn Arabic.

As an intern, you’ll spend one academic year working at AUC. Each intern fulfills a full-time position in an AUC office or department that aligns with his or her professional and academic interests. Through your work, you’ll gain substantive skills and professional experience that will contribute to the AUC community. Past interns have utilized the knowledge and networks that they develop during the program to progress their careers and pursue opportunities, including in the fields of government, academia, journalism and law.
