United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) sets an overall framework for intergovernmental efforts to tackle the challenge posed by climate change.
UNFCCC’s internship program allows graduate students to gain insight into the work of the United Nations and provides assistance and training in various professional fields.
The normal duration of an internship is two months, which can be extended for an additional two months.

Applicants pursuing their studies in countries where higher education is not divided into undergraduate and postgraduate stages should have completed at least four years of study and be a student at the time of application and during the internship.
