International Internship Programme


The UNICEF Paid Internship Programme offers eligible students and applicants the opportunity to acquire direct practical experience in UNICEF’s work. UNICEF is active in various functional areas related to its mandate, which can be categorized in three main pillars: Programme and Policy, External Relations and Operations.

Internships are offered depending on the needs and capacity of offices to receive and supervise interns. Currently, available internship opportunities are advertised on the UNICEF employment page

Our Internship Programme has been revised to broaden the eligibility criteria and introduce the paid modality.

Eligibility Requirements

To be considered for an internship, applicants must meet the following requirements:

  • Be a Non-Graduate, an undergraduate, graduate or Ph.D. degree programme or have graduated within the past two years.
  • Applicants must be at least 18 years old.
  • Be proficient in at least one of UNICEF’s working languages: English, French or Spanish. Fluency in the working language of the office you are applying to is required.
  • Have excellent academic performance as demonstrated by recent university or institution records.
  • Have no immediate relatives (e.g. father, mother, brother, sister) working in any UNICEF office; and
  • Have no other relatives in the line of authority which that you will report to.
  • Individuals must demonstrate excellent academic performance through recent university or institution records.


UNICEF Volunteers receive a basic living allowance that allows the volunteer to live healthily and safely in the assigned area. If you volunteer outside of your home area, return airfare or land transport (as applicable) and some other basic costs are paid by the host agency. You will receive orientation and training before and after your assignment.
