As part of the Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav celebrations to commemorate 75 years of independence, Ministry of External Affairs is launching the first edition of the MEA Internships Programme.
The MEA Internship Policy 2022 aims to take foreign policy closer to the people; bring in more focus on MEA; provide more value to the interns; ensure better gender inclusivity and increase diversity in terms of qualifications, domicile and socio-economic status amongst the cohort of interns engaged by the Ministry.
An honorarium of INR 10,000 per month will be paid to each intern to defray basic costs. Cost of one-time to and fro air travel subject to a ceiling of the prevailing economy class air fare between the State capital and Delhi, from the domicile State or from the college / university of the selected candidates will be provided. The interns would be responsible for their board and lodging in Delhi during the period of their internship.

Internships shall also be open to students who are presently in the final year of their graduation, where an internship is a mandatory part of their final year curriculum.
