Post-Grad Opportunity: Presidential Internship Program at TheAmerican University in Cairo


The American University in Cairo

The Program

Established in 1981, the Presidential Internship Program at The American University in Cairo (AUC) provides recent university graduates the opportunity to spend an academic year working at the highest levels of an international university, learn Arabic, and experience life in Cairo.

Working at AUC

Interns work full-time in one of seven university offices, such as the Office of Administration and Finance, in which the intern tracks and maps risk, manages the financial policies of a large institution, and reviews and enhances AUC’s services.


Program benefits include a monthly living stipend, faculty housing, private Arabic tutoring, health insurance, subsidized trips around Cairo and Egypt, and access to the AUC library and gym facilities.


We have traditionally accepted a diverse array of students, including those with no background in Arabic or Middle Eastern Studies. Interested students should view the attached brochure and visit our website for more information on the program and how to apply. They can also visit our Facebook page and blog. The application is due January 15, 2015.

Best regards,

Exciting news:

The Husky Leadership Certificate application is open!

WHAT is it?

The Husky Leadership Certificate recognizes and celebrates UW students’ innovative leadership accomplishments and characteristics. Students work with a mentor who guides them in reflecting on their time as Huskies. The product of this is a student-created e-portfolio demonstrating what they have learned about leadership and who they have become as leaders.

WHO are we looking for?

We seek undergraduate Huskies in their 3rd, 4th or 5thyear who practice leadership in a variety of ways. Our leaders are change-agents, activists, community organizers, entrepreneurs, scholars and more.

HOW do you get involved?

If you are interested in pursuing the Husky Leadership Certificate, you can learn more about the program, the process, and find the application here. On this site, you can also learn about the leadership e-portfolio and view examples from previous students.

WHY participate?

The Husky Leadership Certificate builds upon students’ previous experiences and adds value to their degrees by increasing self-awareness of their campus engagement, community impact, and personal development. Certificate recipients will be able to articulate their values, goals, strengths and how their Husky experience has prepared them to become effective leaders on campus and in the years to come.

WHEN should you apply?

Today! If not today, then definitely no later than Monday, November 3, at noon. Applications will not be accepted after that day and time. Apply here.
