Interns at OWSD

OWSD welcomes applications for internships in particular from students at education institutes in or near Trieste, Italy. In the past we have accepted students from the Institute of International Sociology in Udine and those doing a Masters in Intercultural Cooperation for Development (Cooperazione Interculturale allo Sviluppo) at the Università degli Studi di Trieste.

Each intern, in discussion with OWSD staff, receives tailor-made terms of reference.

The first task is to become familiar with the OWSD history, objectives and programmes, especially the OWSD fellowship programme.

Each intern will then receive training in one or more of the following:

  • inputting and analysing data using a Filemaker database.
  • processing and following up applications for fellowships via email
  • procedures for awarding travel funds and organising travel to international conferences
  • identifying and contacting past fellowship awardees ('alumnae') via email and telephone
  • placing announcements and upates on facebook, the website and other social media
  • undertaking relevant internet research

Benefits:

Free life time membership of OWSD!

How to apply: Go to the UNESCO website stageweb.unesco.org and fill out the relevant details.

When asked to put your preferred city, please put Trieste (or, if unavailable, Venice).
