Established in 1981, the Presidential Internship Program at The American University in Cairo (AUC) provides recent university graduates with the opportunity to work at the highest levels of an international university, experience life in Cairo and learn Arabic.
Selected individuals spend one academic year working at AUC, studying Arabic and partaking in the rich intellectual and cultural life of both the University and Cairo. Each intern fulfills a full-time position in one of seven offices, aligned with their academic and professional interests, where they develop the substantive skills and experience needed to make tangible contributions to the AUC community. Interns have utilized the skills, knowledge and networks that they develop during the program to go on to pursue a variety of meaningful opportunities and careers, including in the fields of government, academia, journalism and law.
