Foreign National Student Internship Program (FNSIP)

Foreign National Student Internship Program (FNSIP)

The Human Resources (HR) Office in Paris administers the Foreign National Student Internship Program (FNSIP).  The main purpose of the Tri-Mission Foreign National Student Intern Program is to provide students with the opportunity and challenge of working in a foreign affairs arena while profiting from the expertise of experienced employees.   Interns may earn academic credit from their educational institutions.  Their supervisors serve as mentors, providing feedback as necessary to the intern and to the academic institution.

There are no benefits attached to the FNSIP (i.e.  Compensation, leave, future employment rights etc.).
