Overseas internships available with UN FAO


February 13, 2013

The MSU International Institute announces a joint venture with the UN Food & Agriculture Organization (FAO) to establish competitive student internships at selected FAO mission sites. The first round of internships are available in 2013 in Chile, Cuba (2), Paraguay and Peru. These internships are made available through a very selective process where MSU is one of only two universities currently selected to participate. Students are encouraged to apply, and those selected will receive at least $4,000 per student to assist with travel, lodging, and food costs. Interested applicants should submit a resume and a one page statement of interest. All applications must be submitted electronically to Lokesh Shivakumaraiah (LS10@msstate.edu) by March 15 for consideration. Further information may be obtained by contacting Dr. Shivakumaraiah at the email address listed above.
