The objectives of the Internship Programme are to promote among the participants a better understanding of the United Nations and of the World Food Programme. Internships provide Divisions at headquarters or country offices with the assistance of outstanding young students specializing in fields relevant to WFP activities. WFP places CVs of eligible intern applicants on the Internship Roster via the WFP Intranet. After receiving acknowledgement of receipt of a qualified CV, applicants will be contacted only if a hiring manager is interested in inviting them.
