About the program
The Presidential Internship Program (PiP) at Al Akhawayn University in Ifrane (AUI) was established in Fall 2016 with the aim of providing recent graduates from US-accredited, American-style “Liberal Arts” universities around the globe the opportunity to learn about Moroccan culture and language, while working at an American-style “Liberal Arts” university nestled in a pristine, peaceful region in the Middle Atlas Mountains of Morocco.
Presidential Interns will spend one academic year working at AUI where they will develop crucial interpersonal and office-related skills. During the application process, interns are able to select from a variety of full-time positions, and are ultimately matched with the office that best suits their personal interests and professional qualifications.
Al Akhawayn University welcomes applications from candidates of all cultural backgrounds. The internship itself is designed to allow graduates of all nationalities the opportunity to live and work in Ifrane, and to experience both Morocco and the wider MENA region.
The perks of being a presidential intern include:
- A Rent-free on-campus housing.
- A settling-in allowance of 500MAD in addition to the first stipend installment.
- A monthly stipend of 3000MAD for living expenses.
