February 08, 2005 Call for Applications
The Watson Institute announces the second annual Ralph Bunche United Nations Internship grant to place one graduating senior in the United Nation's Department of Peacekeeping Best Practices Unit (PBPU) for three months this summer. The Institute will provide a $2,500 award to the recipient which may be used to defray the expense of living in New York while working at the United Nations as an intern.
All graduating seniors with a demonstrated interest in international organizations, United Nations peacekeeping operations or peacebuilding are eligible to apply.
Applications should be in the form of a two page letter of interest including a discussion of how the applicant has demonstrated relevant interest and how he or she would benefit from the internship; a resume; a transcript (internal is fine); and the names of two Brown faculty references, including their phone number and email address, who may be contacted in the event the applicant becomes a finalist in the competition. The selection of the candidate will take into account relevant preparation, the record of academic achievement, and the contribution of this internship experience to a future career.
Deadline and Timeline: All applications should be received by noon on 25 March 2005. The completed applications should be placed in the mailbox of Elizabeth Goodfriend at the Watson Institute, 111 Thayer Street, Brown University. Finalists may be interviewed by the award committee in March 2005 and the grant winner will be announced in early April.
