2011 Summer Internships: Council on Hemispheric Affairs

2010 PG graduate, Geoff LeGrande, now in the Peace Corps in Latin America, was a COHA intern, and welcomed contact by interested applicants (contact me, share@pugetsound.edu if you want me to put you in touch with Geoff:

COHA is now accepting applications for summer internships in the field of U.S.-Latin American and Canadian relations. Every summer, COHA awards some 30 internships to applicants from a pool of roughly 300 candidates. COHA accepts applications on a rolling basis, but openings tend to be filled quickly. COHA is always looking for original, exacting scholars who possess an uncluttered writing style. We are looking for resourceful, sharp and motivated applicants who are seeking an opportunity to receive practical experience in the fields of policymaking and communicating with the media, and have a desire to advance progressive development on political, economic, and trade matters throughout Latin America and Canada. As the jockeying for internships can, at times, be rather competitive, in applying for such positions we ask potential applicants to send us the following documents to ensure we are recruiting the most qualified candidates: cover letter, résumé, writing sample, transcripts, 2 letters of recommendation, and a completed COHA internship application form (found
here). We look forward to receiving your application, which will be diligently scrutinized.
