From October 2012 to May 2013, I interned at the Colorado European Union Center of Excellence (CEUCE) at the University of Colorado. I had heard about CEUCE through my International Affairs professor David Bearce, so when the Presidents Leadership Class announced the internship opportunity, I was excited to apply. I’m glad I did. Interning at CEUCE has been a valuable experience for both my personal and professional development.
CEUCE Undergraduate Internship Program
Established in 2009, the CEUCE Undergraduate Internship Program strives to become one of the most prestigious, competitive internships on the CU-Boulder campus. Because of the Center’s expansive reach in the community, the Internship Program affords its participants the unique opportunity to interact with some of the Boulder/Denver area’s most dynamic professional personalities from a variety of constituencies. Past interns have found the program incredibly rewarding, as the skills developed and connections forged establish the framework for a successful professional career.
CEUCE is looking for a motivated, thorough, versatile, and professional CU undergraduate student(s) to support all aspects of CEUCE operations. An internship with CEUCE will provide a versatile professional experience with opportunities to significantly increase knowledge about the EU and its global influence; improve research and writing skills; meet diplomats, Colorado business professionals and policy-makers; gain first-hand experience in program/event planning; work with two very large institutions and regulatory frameworks (CU and the EU); and manage the variety of duties that are important to any successful organization or business.
APPLICATION DEADLINES: May 1, August 1 and December 1 by 5pm, Mountain Standard Time
