ISA accepts interns on a limited basis, depending on the specific needs of the respective offices within the Secretariat.
The purpose of the internship programme is twofold:
(a) to provide a framework through which students and young government officials from diverse academic backgrounds can gain exposure to the work and functions of ISA, in order to enhance their educational experience and/or gain experience in the work of ISA; and
(b) to enable ISA to benefit from the assistance of qualified students and young government officials specialized in various skills within the scope of activities of ISA.
The nature of the internships are not predefined, rather, the Secretariat determines the number and nature of internships, according to the current requirements of the respective offices. Selection and recruitment are therefore on an ongoing basis. Each intern is supervised by a designated staff member of the Secretariat.
Interns are responsible for obtaining the necessary visas, arranging travel to and from Kingston, and arranging accommodation and travel in Kingston. They are not financially remunerated by ISA. Costs and arrangements for travel, visas, accommodation and living expenses are the responsibility of the interns or their sponsoring institutions. ISA accepts no responsibility for the medical insurance of the intern or costs arising from injury, illness or death that may occur during an internship.
Applicants must show proof of valid medical insurance coverage to cover the full period of the internship in Kingston and provide a medical certificate of good health prior to the commencement of the internship.
ISA accepts no responsibility for loss or damage to personal effects that may occur.
