About the Internship Programme
Internship applications are open all year round. The International Anti-Corruption Academy (IACA) accepts a limited number of interns each year.
The Internship Programme is designed for students enrolled in Bachelor’s, Master’s, or PhD (or equivalent) university programmes and recent graduates wishing to develop and broaden their professional skills and gain working experience in an international environment. Internships are offered in areas such as external relations, event organization, communications, marketing, law, programme development and organization, administration, and IT.
Internships are on a full-time basis for a period of three to six months and take place at the IACA campus in Laxenburg, Austria.
Interns are personally responsible for obtaining any required visas for Austria and for complying with local laws including residency registration.
The Internship Programme is not remunerated. Costs arising from travel, accommodation, mandatory health insurance, and living expenses are the responsibility of the intern. An internship does not constitute any commitment to future employment with IACA. However, interns may apply for vacancy notices as external candidates at any time during and after their internship.
The candidate’s application should include an up-to-date résumé or curriculum vitae, which also contains the names and contact details of two references who are familiar with his/her qualifications. The curriculum vitae should be accompanied by a concise cover letter (max. 400 words) outlining the applicant’s interest in the Internship Programme, relevant experience (academic and non-academic), and perceived benefit of completing an internship at IACA. Applicants are also asked to include their availability in the application package.
Applications should be sent by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or by post to:
