Internships at AFSA

The American Foreign Service Association (AFSA) is pleased to make internship opportunities available to eligible students. We strongly believe in providing fulfilling and substantial experiences during these internships; interns will work on important issues throughout their time with us. We offer internships in the areas listed below. Most internships are offered three times a year - for the spring, summer and fall semesters. Please see each individual description for deadlines and requirements. (Photo shows a recent group of interns enjoying an AFSA-sponsored tour of the Diplomatic Reception Rooms at the Department of State.)

AFSA is located at the corner of 21st and E Street NW. It is two blocks from the George Washington University campus, directly across from the Department of State, near the Foggy Bottom Metro stop on the Orange, Blue and Silver lines.
