Published 06 Jan 2020

The AIIA is proud to offer the Russell Trood Internship thanks to the generosity of Russell Trood FAIIA, former president of AIIA Queensland and AIIA Fellow. This 3-month internship is for the Editor of the AIIA’s popular international affairs blog, Australian Outlook, and provides a $1000 honorarium to reimburse the costs of the voluntary internship. The Editor should be available to work 4-5 days per week. The internship will start in early February.

Apply now by selecting Australian Outlook Editor on the AIIA National Office internship application form and follow the instructions.

Applications for February – April intake are now closed. (Deadline: Sunday 19 January at midnight.)

Some handy tips for preparing your application include:

  • Be clear about the dates you are available for the internship (NB: there are no set starting dates);
  • include information both on how you hope to benefit from your placement with the AIIA and what you can offer the AIIA. The AIIA internship program aims to help students and graduates build careers in international affairs and other areas so we care how this placement will help you; and
  • show that you understand what type of organisation the AIIA is in your application. Study the AIIA website to gain a sense of its activities.
