Applications are currently invited for the Fully Funded Open Society Internship in Hungary 2018. The Open Society Internship for Rights and Governance is a project of the Open Society Foundations that was launched in the summer of 2013 in partnership with the School of Public Policy at Central European University. It is designed to inspire a new cohort of practitioners committed to working both in the public interest and at the forefront of global policy.
The highly competitive program allows a limited number of students from top public policy schools to immerse themselves in the ideas and practices of an open society through a clinical seminar held in Budapest at the School of Public Policy at Central European University.
