Summer Fellowships

The Hague Institute’s highly selective Summer Fellowship program was launched in 2013 with the aim of developing the skills of graduate students in an interdisciplinary approach to global justice.


The program is open to current or recent graduate students and runs from 1 June to 31 August each year.  Fellows contribute to ongoing research projects, as well as assisting in the wider activities of the Institute.  Applications for the 2014 cycle are due by 31 March 2014.

Interns provide crucial support to the operations of The Hague Institute and are supported by staff who help interns to develop skills in research, project management and event organization.  Currently, The Hague Institute recruits interns on a rolling basis to one of two positions:


Program Intern

The work of the program intern is focused on The Hague Institute’s three research programs: Conflict Prevention, Rule of Law and Global Governance.  Interns provide research and administrative support and can expect to work on a wide range of projects.  The Institute makes every effort to tailor the internship program to the specific interests of interns, although the specific focus of any internship will depend on ongoing project needs.


Communications Intern

As The Hague Institute develops its program of high-level public and closed-door events, it is recruiting a Communications Intern who will provide valuable support in event organization.  The intern will assist with the preparation, management and delivery of events.  The role requires excellent organizational skills as well as a keen interest in the substantive issues on which Hague Institute events are convened.


Interns should be enrolled in a Bachelor’s or Master’s program or be recent graduates.  In addition to a stipend, The Hague Institute provides interns with lunch as well as access to the Institute’s high-level events. For more information, see the Internship Program [PDF].
