About the Energy, Climate Change & Extractive Industries Internship Program
The Inter-American Dialogue’s Energy, Climate Change & Extractive Industries Program seeks to improve understanding and communication on energy and climate policy issues in Latin America through research, public events, and round-table discussions. By producing balanced analysis and convening policymakers, corporate leaders, and industry experts, we inform and shape policies that promote energy security and climate change mitigation while encouraging economically, socially, and environmentally responsible development of natural resources. The program is currently accepting part-time or full-time unpaid internship applications.

DEADLINE: Applications are due on March 26, 2021, at 5:00 PM (ET).
NOTE: The Dialogue’s Internship Program for Summer 2021 will be remote. Applicants do not have to be based in DC. Circumstances permitting, interns may have the opportunity to participate in a combined in-person/remote internship at the Dialogue’s DC office. This may be an option later in the semester. However, interns can still choose to continue their internship remotely if they prefer or if they are not based in DC.
Although the Dialogue does review each application, the volume of applications we receive makes it impossible for us to communicate directly with all applicants. We will notify you if you are selected for a first-round interview.
For questions, please e-mail email@example.com.
