I wanted to share an internship opportunity that may be of interest to Penn State GIS students. This is a virtual internship, so its a great way to get some job experience around a busy academic schedule. If you have a way to share this with current students that would be great.
USAID's Middle East Bureau is looking for a virtual intern to support GIS work. They will be helping me to develop open source datasets and conduct analysis to support our work in international development. More information about the internship and desirable qualifications is provided here: https://vsfs.state.gov//projects/view/735
Students need to apply between July 2 – 26 on USAJOBS.gov by searching for “VSFS” or “Virtual Student Foreign Service.” Once in the application, students can select their top three projects. To apply for this project for USAID's Middle East Bureau, they will use the code: USAID-USA-40
Students are welcome to apply to other projects that may be of interest as well.
