The Carter Center is the fulcrum of Jimmy Carter’s post-presidential activities and is dedicated to improving human rights and living conditions across the globe. The center’s activities include resolving conflicts, monitoring elections, advocating for transparency in government and fighting some of the world’s forgotten diseases.
The Carter Center internship program began in 1984. Over 110 students participate each year and most work in the peace programs area, monitoring activities and writing reports on assigned countries, and assisting with planning international conference/meetings. Interns work a minimum of 20 hours a week (some up to 40) in one of the center’s three program divisions: peace programs, health programs and operations.
Open to college juniors and seniors (with a minimum of 60 credit hours), grad students and recent graduates (fewer than two years after graduation). International applicants are welcome.
