Starting from January 2020 interns may receive stipends according to UNDP rules and regulations, based on their duty station. Where an intern is financially supported by an institution, government, or third party, UNDP will, subject to the rules of such institution, government, or third party, pay the intern the difference, if any, between the external financial support provided and the applicable UNDP stipend.

 

Any further costs associated with the internship must be borne by the nominating institution, related institution, or government, which may provide the required financial assistance to its students; or by the student, who will have to obtain financing for subsistence and make his or her arrangements for travel, accommodation and other costs.

 

Application procedure

 

The application should contain:

 

  • Brief Cover Letter (in English) stating interest in and qualifications for the post;
  • Current and complete CV in English;
  • Current portfolio in English

 

Please group all your documents into one (1) single PDF document as the system only allows to upload maximum one document.

 

Candidates who are selected must submit prior to the interview the following documents:

 

  • Official document(s) confirming your education status stated in Section 4;
  • Proof of medical and life/accident insurance valid for the location in which the internship will be carried out.
  • Selected intern must have medical and life insurance.

 

 

UNDP only accepts interns for a minimum of 6 weeks and a maximum of 6 months.

Interns are not staff members and may not represent UNDP in any official capacity.

It is important to note that interns are responsible to arrange for their own visa and residence documents, and need to plan for these well in advance.

 

Subsequent Employment

 

The purpose of the Internship Programme is not to lead to further employment with UNDP but to complement an intern’s studies. Therefore, there should be no expectation of employment at the end of an internship. It is important to note that interns are responsible to arrange for their own visa and residence documents and need to plan for these well in advance.

UNDP is committed to achieving workforce diversity in terms of gender, nationality, and culture. Individuals from minority groups, indigenous groups, and persons with disabilities are equally encouraged to apply. All applications will be treated with the strictest confidence.

 

UNDP does not tolerate sexual exploitation and abuse, any kind of harassment, including sexual harassment, and discrimination. All selected candidates will, therefore, undergo rigorous reference and background checks.
