The Europe Center is sponsoring undergraduate internships with leading Belgium-based European think-tank and transnational organizations in the summer of 2017. 

You can read about our interns' experiences on the Global Student Fellows Blog.

 

BELGIUM-BASED INTERNSHIPS

  • The Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe (ALDE), a transnational political party of the European Parliament:  2 positions, from June 12 to July 21.
  • Bruegel, a think-tank devoted to policy research on international economic issues:  3 positions, from July 31 to September 8.
  • Carnegie Europe, an independent policy research center providing foreign policy analysis and policy recommendations on the strategic issues facing Europe and its role in the world: 1 position, 9 consecutive weeks, with some flexibility to adjust this to work with the intern's summer schedule, between June 19 and September 15 (start and end dates to be determined by the host and student).
