SCIS Internships

The Southern Center for International Studies offers student-internships in its Research Library .

Interns at the The Southern Center are students in the Center's school, which falls within the Research Department and is headed by the Research Director.

Research Library

Research internships are located within the Southern Center's Research Library, which provides the research support and organization for the Southern Center's various publications, programs, and archives. Using on-line research databases, the Research Library's files, and various outside sources, the research team conducts research for and assists in the production of the Southern Center's World in Transition series of educational materials and major televised conferences; produces updates on world regions, a timeline of international events, and research links, all of which are posted on the SCIS Web site; compiles information packages on countries or international issues for corporate members and local programs; and provides briefings on current international issues at Southern Center workshops or to local community groups.The Research Library is also in charge of organizing the Southern Center's 50 year print, audio, video, and photographic archives.

The student-internship program in the Research Library has four tiers: Research Associates, Research Assistants, College and Masters Level Student-Interns, and High School Student-Interns. Roughly 20 Research Associates, Research Assistants, and SCIS student-interns enter the school each year through the SCIS Internship Program, which is managed by the Director of the Research Library.

Each tier has its own admissions requirements. Nevertheless, important qualifications for all student-interns include: interest in and knowledge of international affairs; previous academic performance; excellent writing, computer, and on-line research skills; and the ability to perform detail-oriented work.
