    • Hello Jennifer,

      There are none as of yet but updates on this summer’s internship and an application will be added to the blog in March or April so keep an eye out for it!

      Thanks for your interest!

      • Following on from Jennifer’s question, is there any indication as to whether or not European university students are likely to be eligible to apply for the 2012-13 intake? I have noticed some conflicting information – specification of ‘American students’ in some places and a lack of such qualification elsewhere. Clarification would be very much appreciated, as I’d very much like to apply, though I’m currently studying at a European university.

        Best wishes,

      • Hello Shaun,

        Yes, none-US college/grad students are eligible to apply for the MOU Overseas Correspondents internship. This internship is open to all college/grad students and recent graduates. I apologize for the confusion and hope that this provides some clarification.


    • Hello,

      Previously, interns were given the option to choose from option A or B. Option A interns would only participate in the volunteer section of the internship and Option B interns would participate in both the office internship and the volunteer section.

      However, starting from this year, interns will no longer be given the option to choose but will be required to participate in the entire program.

      I hope this answers your question. If you have any more questions, please feel free to email us at
