SAM admits full-time and part-time interns throughout the year for undergraduates, recent graduates as well as graduate students who want to gain knowledge and experience in Turkish foreign policy. Although the internships are unpaid, the insight and experience they offer is priceless. The applications are admitted online at SAM’s web site. Responsibilities of interns include, but not limited to doing research in foreign policy issues, assisting the supervisors at SAM, attending meetings as note takers and help preparing post-meeting reports.
Successful interns at SAM who receive a certificate at the end of their internship usually develop a better idea of how the Ministry of Foreign Affairs functions, develop personal connections with the diplomats and become a part of SAM Alumni.
