The World Bank Internship Program offers highly motivated individuals an opportunity to be exposed to the mission and work of the World Bank. The internship allows individuals to bring new perspectives, innovative ideas and research experience into the Bank’s work while improving skills in a diverse environment. Internships are available in both development operations and other business units.
The WB pays an hourly salary to all Interns and, where applicable, provides an allowance toward travel expenses. Interns are responsible for their own accommodation.
