Established in 1981, the Presidential Internship Program at The American
University in Cairo (AUC) provides recent university graduates the
opportunity to spend an academic year working at the highest levels of an
international university, learn Arabic and experience life in Egypt.
Participants intern full-time in one of eight university offices, working
in a range of fields including University administration, sustainability,
finance, student affairs, advancement, communications and institutional
research. A detailed list of these offices can be found on our website. This
program provides recent graduates the unique opportunity to begin their
professional careers while abroad.
Program benefits include a monthly living stipend, furnished faculty
housing, private Arabic tutoring, access to AUC faculty and staff programs,
community-based personal development, subsidized trips around Cairo and
Egypt and more.
We look for a diverse array of application from a wide range of American universities, including students with no background in Arabic or Middle Eastern Studies. Potential applicants should visit our website for more information on the program and how to apply. In addition, visit our Facebook page and blog to learn more about living and working in Egypt.
The application is due January 20, 2017.
