Internship Program

For Thai national students who are interested in the Internship Program at the U.S. Mission in Thailand, please read the following information.

Guidelines for the Foreign National Student (Thai) Internship Program (FNSIP)

The Foreign National Student Intern Program is designed for students who are non-U.S. citizens seeking internships with U.S. Missions abroad. The program benefits both posts and students by providing the foreign national students with valuable educational experience in U.S. Missions and by assisting posts in accomplishing their mission goals.

There are no benefits attached to the internship and no compensation, nor any future employment rights. However, students will gain valuable educational experience within U.S. Mission Thailand. As an unpaid intern, you will not be an official employee of the U.S. Government or entitled to payment for service.

American students interested in internships with the Department of State working in a foreign affairs environment, should apply to the program at https://careers.state.gov/intern
