Political-Science Internship

Dream of a career in government? Gain hands-on experience by helping to run the GZA electoral campaign for the World Zionist Congress. The GZA is the only environmental organization to ever win a seat in WZC elections. At our first Congress in 2002, we won one seat. In 2006 we doubled that. In 2010 we have secured three seats. This is an opportunity to be involved with the campaign for the 2015 Congress, where we will build on our past success and hopefully win at least five seats. Ideal for someone with a passion for politics and/or international relations.

Internship FAQs:

What's expected of interns?
Interns are expected to care about the environment and to work in a professional context with GZA staff, volunteers and other interns, so interns should be self-starters who work well both independently and with others.

When are internships offered?
Internships are offered for the fall, spring and summer academic terms.

Where would I work?
Because interns work remotely, internships can be done anywhere in the world.

What are the hours?
Hours are flexible depending upon the intern's schedule and the needs of any given week. Generally speaking, interns should be prepared to work 15-20 hours per week during the fall and spring terms and 35-40 hours per week during the summer term.

Can I get academic credit for interning?
Since the GZA is an all-volunteer nonprofit, all internships are nonpaid but usually can be done for academic credit. Selected interns also receive free membership in the Green Zionist Alliance.

Do I have to be a student?
GZA internships are open to both students and non-students.

Do I have to be Jewish?
Religious affiliation or lack thereof is not considered in the internship-application process. Our nondiscrimination policy prohibits religious discrimination.

What if I apply and don't get accepted, can I apply again later?
