2017 Fully paid Internships at MacArthur Foundation

Eligible Countries: Applicants from all countries can apply

Application Deadline:Endeavor to submit applications on or before 14th December, 2016

Internship Info: The John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation supports and encourages creative people, effective institutions, and influential networks to build a more just, verdant, and peaceful world.

Note that organizations globally supported by the Foundation operate in about 50 countries. In addition to Chicago, MacArthur has offices in India, Mexico, and Nigeria.

MacArthur is placing a few big bets that truly significant progress is possible on some of the world’s most pressing social challenges, including over-incarceration, global climate change, nuclear risk, and significantly increasing financial capital for the social sector. In addition to the MacArthur Fellows Program, the Foundation has an internship programme that brings on dedicated undergraduates every year.

The Communications Intern will research and write content for the Foundation’s website and social media channels; compile press lists and media clips; assist with planning Foundation events; and attend in-house briefings, presentations, and meetings on a range of issues (often with outside speakers) to learn more about the Foundation and key areas of grantmaking.
