Project Description

The United States is an Indo-Pacific nation with deep, enduring, and long-standing historic ties to the countries of the Pacific region. The State of Hawaii, our Pacific territories, and our unique relationships with the Freely Associated States (FAS) make the United States an integral part of the Pacific. The United States has a long history of assisting and partnering with the Pacific Islands to address local and global challenges. From disaster assistance to poverty reduction, education to national defense, and more, the United States contributes resources and expertise to developing nations across the Pacific Islands region.

The Bureau of East Asian and Pacific Affairs (EAP) Office of Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific Islands (ANP) seeks a student intern to lead on collecting and analyzing data from the interagency about their programs and assistance in the Pacific Islands to produce an annual report on USG Assistance to the Pacific. The report is currently an Excel spreadsheet and accompanying Word document narrative. EAP/ANP seeks an intern with data analysis, graphic design, and public diplomacy skills who excels with detail oriented projects to collect and analyze data and design new ways of visually presenting the information for both internal USG and external consumption. This may include new infographics, social media campaigns, blogs, public facing websites, and other new products describing U.S. engagement in the Pacific Islands for both internal and external audiences.
