    Spend a summer working in a U.S. Embassy in one of 90 locations
    throughout the world! The USDA Foreign Agricultural Service's
    International Internship Program is a PAID internship program and is in
    need of applicants! As of this week, the program has only received 3
    applications nationwide!

    MARCH 15TH!

    The Foreign Agricultural Service's Internation! al Internship Program
    provides college students the opportunity to live and work in a paid
    internship at an American Embassy overseas. Through work assignments
    participants learn various aspects of international trade, trade policy,
    international relations, diplomacy, regional and cultural
    considerations, etc. Positions are available in Western Europe, Latin
    America, and Asia. The internship is offered every semester and summer
    for graduate students and upperclassmen (juniors and seniors).
    Requirements: Be a currently enrolled graduate or undergraduate student
    (must be a junior or a senior), a U.S.citizen and in good academic
    standing. Graduate level students in business, international relations,
    regional studies (i.e. Latin American Studies, Asian Studies, etc),
    public policy, foreign languages, etc., as well as high-achieving junior
    and senior undergraduates in similar majors are particularly encouraged
    to apply, though the program is open to all majors. Please see the
    appli! cation at this website:

    This internship program is a great way to get international experience
    and expose yourself to career fields you may never have considered.
    Please do not let any part of the application intimidate you! If you
    need help, that's my job to help you. It is completely doable! Also, the
    application states that you must pay for your own transportation to your
    job site. If that is a financial problem, still apply and we'll see how
    we can find you financial assistance. Again, if you have any questions
    or you decide to apply PLEASE LET ME KNOW! And please pass this email on
    to any other students or listserves. Thank you! Lillian Gorman Program
