The SHAPE Internship Programme has four main objectives:

  • To offer interns the opportunity to learn from the SHAPE community and gain a thorough understanding of the organisation and NATO in general.
  • To contribute to creating a more diverse workforce through encouraging Divisions/Offices to take on interns of different nationalities, origins and backgrounds with a view, in the mid to long-term, to providing SHAPE with a younger and more diverse pool of potential future job applicants.
  • To provide SHAPE with access to the contemporary academic, theoretical and technical knowledge that the interns can apply through practical work assignments.
  • To expand understanding of NATO in Alliance countries by having interns return to their countries and/or universities after completing the internship and share their experience, as well as to help NATO branding by being an Ambassador of SHAPE.
