World Bank Latin America and the Caribbean Region Inclusive Internship Program (Fully Funded)

Application Deadline: July 22nd, 2024.

The Latin America and Caribbean Region (LCR) Inclusive Internship Program (IIP) is a key initiative for the LCR Vice-presidential Unit within the World Bank’s larger commitment to combat racism and provide career opportunities for people from all backgrounds and ethnicities. The IIP offers highly motivated individuals, with a special focus on Afro descendants, Indigenous Peoples, persons with disabilities, LGBT+ and other minorities from the region, an opportunity to be exposed to the mission and work of the World Bank and the broader World Bank Group. Selected candidates will be able to improve their own skills in a diverse environment dedicated to ending extreme poverty and boosting prosperity and will benefit from (i) opportunities for onboarding and training; (ii) networking, mentoring, and coaching from World Bank staff and (iii) being a part of one of the most reputable development banks in the world.

IIP Interns are hired for a minimum period of two months to work on sector projects/country programs in Washington, D.C. or in one of LCR’s country offices.  All interns are paid the same rate per hour by country requirements and are hired as a short-term temporary.

Following a thorough evaluation process at the conclusion of the internship, successful IIP interns are encouraged to apply to the WBG Young Professionals Program should they meet such application requirements, or to any other full-time opportunity available after graduation.
