Summer Internship 2017

It is now possible to apply for this year’s edition of the FFIPP Summer Internship Program!

During the summer program, you will have the opportunity to participate in an orientation week which consists of meetings with various actors and conferences in Israel and the Palestinian Territories. Subsequently, you will intern at one of our partner organizations for a duration of four weeks. These internships are, above all, an opportunity to observe, gain a better understanding of the situation on the ground, and discover local structures acting towards the promotion of human rights. Such access to experts, members of civil society, and organizations on the ground make our program different from any other. Don’t miss out on this unique experience!

The duration of the program is of a total of five weeks, comprising one orientation week and four internship weeks. Accommodation throughout the entire stay will be provided by FFIPP, leaving you with the responsibility of financing your flights, food, and other personal expenses.

As an international educational network, we provide you with the opportunity of first going to Palestine/Israel for five weeks and then staying actively involved in our organization for the coming academic year. Back in Europe, FFIPP organizes events, exhibitions, and conferences to raise awareness about the conflict and share insights and experiences gained from the summer program at the local level. We strongly rely on the involvement of students when they come back in order to achieve this. Thus, it is important to understand that FFIPP provides a one-year experience at the beginning of which you go to Palestine/Israel for five weeks, rather than a simple internship.

As a first step of your application, please fill out the application form in English (no more than 200 words per answer). The completed application form should be sent along with your CV in English to before March 12th, 2017, at midnight. Please use the subject line “Summer Program Swiss Chapter”. Pre-selected candidates will then be invited for an interview.

We’re looking forward to getting to know you!
