Project Description

U.S. Embassy Kyiv’s Economic Section is looking for an intern to conduct research on legislation, government policy, and investment climate for increased renewable energy in Ukraine. The intern will have the opportunity to draft policy papers, create fact sheets and talking points, and complete other written research documents covering the renewable energy sector. This internship is perfect for students interested in the intersection between energy and government policy. You’ll also get feedback on how to write effectively for U.S. government audiences, a better idea about how U.S. foreign policy is formed and shaped, and an enthusiastic supervisor who will talk your ear off about careers in international affairs with the U.S. government.
