The ICD Internship Project (2008-17) is a 10 year program with the main purpose to enable current students who need an internship as a compulsory part of their BA or graduate studies to engage in cultural diplomacy and in doing so, to further promote cultural diplomacy and multiculturalism worldwide. Indeed, the past years of the project have been witness to interns being active participants in the multicultural field; where lasting friendships were formed and valuable contacts made, which immediately expanded each individual’s network to all parts of the world. The positioning of the ICD in the center of Europe, makes it a natural hub for the younger generation.


The diverse multicultural environment provides an excellent framework for Cultural Diplomacy to be practiced on a daily basis within the office as well as outside of the office. One of the main privileges afforded by the project is to work in a young, interdisciplinary and international environment, which serves as a model of successful multiculturalism in practice. The experience of learning to work together in a multicultural and international organizational environment is a rare, unique and a rewarding common experience.


The ICD voluntary internships are full-time, unpaid and last 3 months. Applications are to be submitted online. For more information on the internships please contact us at or visit our website.




  • This internship is open to currently enrolled students for whom doing an internship is a compulsory component of their academic studies.
  • Applicants have good spoken and written English (German, Spanish language skills are considered an advantage and other language skills are an asset).
  • Due to the nature of the work we place high value on flexibility, positive attitude, a strong work ethic and the ability to work well with others.
  • Due to the large amount of activity and programs that ICD runs throughout the year interns work in teams under the direction of a Team Leader/Program Director with minimal supervision.
