The CIS has an ongoing intern program.  We do however only take interns when there is a research program that has a requirement and an appropriate mentor to work with the intern.  We do not currently have an foreign affairs program so would be more interested in economics and other social science students and graduates.  Please send your CV and a cover letter to the General Manager
