United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) and Sciences Po: a cooperation that makes sense

World Food Programme
In 2017, out of 22 internships offered worldwide for their Summer programme, 5 Sciences Po students had the great opportunity to travel the world and work for the WFP. In January 2018, a new WFP Summer internship programme is launched: will you be part of it?

The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) is the leading humanitarian organization fighting hunger worldwide and working towards the global goal of ending hunger by 2030. WFP is delivering food assistance in emergencies and working with communities to improve nutrition and build resilience. Two-thirds of its work is in conflict-affected countries where people are three times more likely to be undernourished than those living in countries without conflict. An average of 80 million people receive food assistance in around 80 countries each year by WFP while almost 15,000 people are dedicatedly working for the organization.

WFP policies determine how food and nutrition assistance is provided. The Policy and Programme Division (OSZ) plays a leading role in policy formulation and design, through close consultation across the organization and with partners around the globe. OSZ provides substantive strategic and technical guidance, backstops WFP Regional Bureaux support to Country Offices, assists Country Offices to roll out and mainstream pilots, innovations and know-how.

The OSZ Internship Programme

In 2016, the WFP launched an internship programme to strengthen the talent pipeline of WFP’s programme policy function, which represents twenty percent of WFP’s global workforce, while offering a unique learning experience to top graduate students.

Joining the OSZ Summer Internship Programme offers top students a first-hand experience of the work of the United Nations World Food Programme and its mission to achieve Zero Hunger. Students will have the chance to gain exposure to the work of WFP, learn new skills, meet highly capable and dynamic WFP staff and grow personally through this international experience. This initiative is only offered to a select group of Universities, amongst them Sciences Po, while regular internship opportunities are open to the public. It targets top educational institutions in the world.

Joining the OSZ Summer Internship Programme offers top students a first-hand experience of the work of the United Nations World Food Programme and its mission to achieve Zero Hunger.

How to apply?

Only students or recent graduates from selected top Universities can apply and compete for OSZ summer internship opportunities, over 3 months period during summer (May-August 2018).
You are encouraged to hand in multiple applications if the field and positions are relevant to your curriculum.
We count on the excellence of your applications: you will be Sciences Po’s ambassadors at United Nations World Food Programme!
