The application period for Summer 2020 internships (unpaid, domestic and overseas) with the U.S. Department of State is now OPEN. Applications are being accepted now through October 4.  Students will need to create a USAJobs and an Open Opportunities profile.  I’ve attached a PDF that explains the steps for applying.  The link to the Internship Portal, at which students can review all internship positions being offered, is:

 To help them with the application process, students might also review two Facebook Live sessions my colleague and I did.
