There are two types of Internship opportunities at the Alliance: the NATO-Funded and the GRANT-funded Internship Programme.

The NATO-funded Internship Programme gives opportunity to a wide range of candidates, while the other opportunity is open for those, whose work is supported from outside sources. And while Candidates interested in a GRANT-funded opportunity can apply throughout the year, the call for the NATO-funded opportunity is open only once per year in Spring with two starting dates, in March and in September the following year. Internships will last 6 months.

NATO has received this year 3,500 applications and thank you for your interest in our Organization! Please be informed that the interns selection for 2018 is now closed. All the selected candidates have been contacted. The candidates who were shortlisted this summer are now added to our reserve list and may be contacted if a new need arises. The list is valid until June 2018. The candidates who were not shortlisted will unfortunately not be added to the list. Their applications files are therefore closed.

Please refer to our website for more information on the selection timeline: http://www.nato.int/cps/en/natolive/72041.htm

Candidates wishing to apply for a GRANT Funded can submit their application only through the online portal available under "Application".

NATO Headquarters (HQ) introduced its Internship Programme in 2004. The aim of the programme is to provide a small number of current or recent students with the opportunity to intern with the International Staff at NATO Headquarters in Brussels and in a few other NATO bodies.
