Al Akhawayn University Presidential Internship Program
AUI’s Presidential Internship Program provides recent graduates from US-accredited American-style universities with the opportunity to interact with the rich culture of Morocco while working at a liberal arts university based on the American system. The length of the internship is one academic year, a period during which Presidential Interns work in various areas of the University and immerse themselves in the experiences Morocco and the wider MENA region have to offer. The application period for the 2017-2018 Internship is now open and will close on June 12, 2017.
