The National Council on U.S.-Arab Relations' Internship and Summer Scholars Program offers undergraduate and graduate students an eight-week professional, academic, and career opportunity internship with an organization from the nation's capital. The program features a demanding mix of professional involvement, intellectual challenge, career exploration, and cultural encounters designed to provide students with a rich and varied experience during their time in the program.
“NCUSAR provided me with an unparalleled experience to explore and actively contribute to the professional environment of D.C. Through embassy briefings, diplomatic receptions, and thought-provoking seminars, I was able to ask questions about foreign affairs, future careers, and personal development to many seasoned experts in the field. I would highly recommend this opportunity for those interested in gaining a unique insight into the facets of U.S.-Arab relations.”

Founded in 1983, the National Council on U.S.-Arab Relations is an American non-profit, non-governmental, educational organization dedicated to improving American awareness, knowledge, and understanding of the Arab countries, the Mideast, and the Islamic world.
Its means for doing so encompass but are not limited to programs for leadership development, people-to-people exchanges, lectures, publications, an annual Arab-U.S. policymakers conference, and the participation of American students and faculty in Arab world study experiences. As a public service, the National Council also serves as an information clearinghouse and participant in national, state, and local grassroots outreach to media, think tanks, and select community, civic, educational, business, and professional associations. In these ways the Council helps strengthen and expand the overall Arab-U.S. relationship.
