Selection Criteria

To be eligible for an Internship, candidates must have an undergraduate degree and be enrolled in a full-time graduate study program (pursuing a Master’s degree or Ph.D. with plans to return to school full-time).

Successful candidates have usually completed their first year of graduate studies or are into their Ph.D. programs. Fluency in English is required.

Relevant work experience, computing skills, as well as knowledge of languages such as French, Spanish, Russian, Arabic, Portuguese, and Chinese are advantageous.

Please attach the following documents (mandatory) before submitting:

–  Curriculum Vitae (CV)

–  Statement of Interest

–  Proof of Enrollment in a graduate degree

This Internship typically seeks candidates in the following fields: economics, finance, human development (public health, education, nutrition, population), social science (anthropology, sociology), agriculture, environment, private sector development, and other related fields.

The Bank pays an hourly salary to all Interns and, where applicable, provides an allowance for travel expenses. Interns are responsible for their own living accommodations. Most positions are in Washington, DC; others are in country offices. They are a minimum of four weeks long.
