CULCON, Japan-U.S. Friendship Commission and U.S.-Japan Bridging Foundation Internship Programme

CULCON, the Japan-U.S. Friendship Commission and the U.S.-Japan Bridging Foundation are deeply committed and proud to offer a joint internship program.  We offer substantive and interesting work, a friendly work environment, encouragement to attend outside related events, reimbursement of transportation costs and excellent networking opportunities.

Internships introduce you to new fields, help you develop or improve skills, build your resume, and can position you to network for future positions.

This is not an internship where you will be serving coffee. We are deeply invested in every intern’s professional development, assigning tasks which allow them to learn new hands-on skills and programs to build their resume. Additionally, interns will receive excellent networking opportunities and are encouraged to attend outside related events. While this is an unpaid internship, reimbursement for local transportation costs is provided.
