Research Associate (Internship)
MicroCapital offers an intensive, remote microfinance internship program. Since 2003, our interns have emerged from the program with a level of knowledge that is unparalleled among new entrants to the field. Our interns have entered full-time positions in many top microfinance organizations. We can assist with applying for academic credit and often can arrange complimentary admission to industry events. Past interns have included both students and accomplished professionals. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis.
The position focuses on research of current events in microfinance and involve writing 6 stories per week of the type that appear on our home page. Interns have leeway to direct a significant portion of their work toward areas of personal interest (e.g., savings, microinsurance or a particular region of the world). Native English and excellent writing skills are required.
All internships are uncompensated. The minimum time commitment is 15 hours per week for a minimum of 15 weeks. The daily schedule is flexible. All positions are carried out online and thus can be completed from anywhere in the world.
If you wish to apply, please specify the number of hours you are available to work and the dates the you propose to begin and end the internship.
Please note that completion of the internship will not necessarily lead to a full-time position with MicroCapital or any other organization.
