Student Internship: Canadian Consulate, Seattle

Get international experience without having to go abroad. We have good connections to the consulate, so if you are interested please contact the department before you apply--

Consulate General of Canada. Consulate général du Canada


The Canadian Consulate General Seattle seeks university interns who wish to experience working for a foreign government in the United States. These positions are non-paid. However, most interns earn course-credit through an independent study as arranged with a professor.

Internships are for a minimum of 8-10 weeks and 9 hours per week. Interns are normally placed in the Political, Economic & Public Affairs Section and work on current projects. They must be computer / database proficient.

Interested students should apply no less than 90 days prior to their anticipated start-date (beginning of semester, quarter, term) as those selected must undergo a Government of Canada background / security check. Interns are provided an email account with Foreign Affairs Canada.

Interested students should contact:
