About CIR Internships

The Santa Fe Council on International Relations (CIR) recognizes the importance of gaining work experience in international affairs. As one of New Mexico’s premier internationally focused organizations, CIR strives to provide internship opportunities for high school and university students. Applications are welcome from both U.S. and international students and CIR does not discriminate on the basis of age, sexual orientation, disability, gender, ethnicity, religion.

CIR expects a minimum of 20 hours per week performing assigned tasks. College students selected for a CIR internship may be expected to contribute 40 hours per week. All internship positions are unpaid.

For summer 2019, interns will be assigned one of the following projects:

  • CIR’s International Visitor (IV) program. The intern(s) will report to the International Visitors Program Officer and will assist in the following tasks: writing proposals for future IV programs; escorting IVs to professional meetings around northern New Mexico; assisting the Program Officer in all tasks as required.
  • CIR’s high school and college education programs. The intern(s) will report to CIR’s Education Program Officer, and will assist in the following tasks: program development, reporting, and implementation.
  • CIR’s at-large issues. The intern(s) will report to CIR’s Executive Director and will assist in the following tasks: CIR social media, website development, communications, and database construction.

Note: Unfortunately, CIR is unable to provide housing for summer interns. Securing housing and transportation are the responsibility of each intern.

Application and Deadlines

The internship application for summer 2019 is now open. The priority deadline was March 8th. While submitting an application by March 8th may not guarantee an internship position, it will ensure those applications submitted by the priority deadline are reviewed first. Applicants will be informed by mid-March whether they have received an internship.

The final deadline is May 3rd. Applications received after May 3rd will not be reviewed. Applicants will be notified by late May whether they have received an internship.

If you have any questions regarding internships, do not call the CIR office. Instead, send an inquiry to internships@sfcir.org and a member of CIR’s staff will respond as soon as possible.
