The Yangon School of Political Science was founded in August 2011 by a group of young, progressive Burmese intellectuals. It is envisaged as a politically independent not-for-profit civil society initiative. The Yangon School of Political Science has a twofold objective: 1) providing and facilitating the education of a younger, new generation of Burmese so that they will think and act democratically as citizens and scholars; and 2) making its educational initiative and political outreach accessible to as many communities as possible across different regions of the country.
The Yangon School of Political Science will host an intern who will work on a project titled "Law and Opinions." The intern will have to explore the international practices in relevant areas.
Eligibility and Skills Required:
Knowledge on public policy and public administration will be an asset but the student with strong academic background is normally and generally good for the project.
Yangon, Myanmar. If travel is not possible remote option may be available.
3-month business visa. Please note that YSPS cannot sponsor the visa as it is not a registered NGO. More details to follow once candidate is selected.
YSPS has about 15 full-time employees. It's a very friendly, laid-back work environment. The intern should be comfortable taking initiative on projects and working independently.
There are several housing options available in the area (hotels and private apartments for rent). YSPS staff will assist the potential intern in looking for housing opportunities, booking process, etc.
FSI is committed to providing its opportunities to students regardless of financial constraints. FSI’s Global Policy Interns are provided with a stipend to cover travel and living expenses during the summer. These stipends do not exceed $6,400 per student. Students must submit a budget with their estimated costs along with their application. If you have additional financial constraints that you think may prevent you from participating in this program, please contact FSI Academic Program Coordinator Patrick Laboon directly.
