Greetings from Cairo,

I am currently a Presidential Intern at The American University in Cairo (AUC), having graduated from Gettysburg College in May 2015. We are now in the process of recruiting applicants for the 2016-2017 program and would greatly appreciate if you could distribute this information to current seniors, advisors, and department heads who may have students interested in the program.


The American University in Cairo

The Program:

Established in 1981, the Presidential Internship Program at The American University in Cairo (AUC) provides recent university graduates the opportunity to spend an academic year working at the highest levels of an international university, learn Arabic, and experience life in Egypt.

Work and Available Offices:

Participants intern full-time in one of eight university offices, working in a range of fields including University administration, sustainability, finance, student development, advancement, communications, and more. A detailed list of these offices can be found on our website. This program provides recent graduates the unique opportunity to begin their professional careers while abroad.


Program benefits include a monthly living stipend, furnished faculty housing, private Arabic tutoring, access to AUC faculty and staff programs, community-based personal development, subsidized trips around Cairo and Egypt, and more.


We look for a diverse array of applicants from a wide range of American universities, including students with no background in Arabic or Middle Eastern Studies. Potential applicants should view the attached brochure and visit our website for more information on the program and how to apply. In addition, visit our Facebook page and blog to learn more about living and working in Egypt.

The application is due January 22, 2016.

Best regards,
