The JSCA Internship Program offers students and professionals from the fields of law, political science, journalism, sociology, anthropology and other disciplines in the social sciences the opportunity to complete a professional practicum in an Inter-American System agency.

All of the programs last a minimum of three months. Selected candidates do not receive remuneration, and work directly with JSCA researchers, assisting them with their work, writing reports, conducting research and providing logistical support for Training Area courses.

The program seeks to strengthen and disseminate JSCA’s work through the temporary addition of professionals and/or students from the Americas and other continents to its multinational and interdisciplinary team. The goal is to provide interns with practical experience with and knowledge of the Center’s work related to research, public policy implementation, training and support for OAS member states in the area of criminal and civil justice reform.

All internships are completed at JSCA’s headquarters in Santiago de Chile. Interns will ideally reside in this city. Applicants are responsible for all transportation and other costs and for securing scholarships or other financial support.
