Application and Logistics

At the CSS we accept interns three times a year: during the fall semester (September-December), spring semester (January-May) and summer term (June-August). Internship length can range between 3- 12 months. In very rare cases we might accept one month internships. We accept bachelor, master and PhD students from all over the world.  Please note that the application process is highly competitive and positions usually fill up six to twelve months before the beginning of the internship period.Applications will be considered on a first come first serve basis. Therefore, please make sure to apply at least 6 months before the internship start date. In order to apply email the internship coordinator Dr. Sara Ababneh a cover letter in which you indicate the time period for which you would like to be considered and an updated academic cv which includes your GPA.  In addition, in case of successful acceptance, please email us a scanned copy of your passport and the contact information of your next of kin. Knowledge of Arabic is a plus but not a requirement. Kindly note that the internships are not paid and that successful candidates must make their own visa, accommodation and travel arrangements.  Due to the highly competitive nature of our program we often have a long waiting list and cannot save seats for applicants who are unsure of their availability. Therefore,please email Dr. Ababneh immediately if there are any changes to your application status.
