ACGRC in Warsaw

Project: EaP Cooperation for Stronger Democracy: Georgia, Moldova and Armenia





Analytical Centre on Globalisation and Regional Cooperation (ACGRC)























General Information

ACGRC offers a unique internship experience for students interested in international security, post-Soviet studies, and economic development. Situated in downtown Yerevan, the capital of Armenia, ACGRC provides interns with an opportunity to learn about the region first-hand from analysts and government officials.


• Fluent in English and have excellent writing skills with no need of editing
• College junior or senior, a recent graduate, or a graduate student.


There may be occasional assignments for research projects, donor proposals, conference reports, and news updates, but these will be rare. The focus of this internship is to encourage intensive study of Armenia and the region. This is an opportunity for highly motivated students with an interest in international affairs, national security, economics, political science and foreign policy to have unmatched regional access and resources that will enhance the interns' independent research and overall experience in Armenia.

Interns must have a strong sense of initiative. Graduate students working on a dissertation or thesis are likely to receive the most tangible benefits. Undergraduates or recent graduates who are not working on a long term research project, such as a dissertation or thesis, will also find this internship highly rewarding if they are proactive and determined to take advantage of ACGRC's location and resources. Interns should arrive with an idea of what they want to research and become acquainted with the politics and social dynamics of the region. ACGRC staff can assist in developing and refining interns` research ideas before they come to Yerevan.


Unfortunately, ACGRC is unable to provide any compensation or course credit. Naturally, we will be happy to write a letter of recommendation, or provide an internship certification letter to a granting institution. In the past, interns have received funding from their colleges or from other philanthropic institutions.

ACGRC often publishes articles written by interns on the ACGRC website. ACGRC will also help to arrange the publication of interns' articles through other outlets (such as newspapers and magazines in the region).
