College internship program available for Palauan students studying abroad

Palauan college and university students studying abroad who have at least completed their junior year can apply for the Palau Fellowship Award to return home for work experience with an agency related to their field of study.

Since 2013 more than 150 college and university students have participated in an internship program to gain real work experience while earning money.

College students who are still undecided about their choice of employment after graduation can take advantage of this unique opportunity to receive a round trip ticket home to explore real work experience to help them decide their future employment in Palau.

The Palau Fellowship Award Internship Program includes a regular bi-weekly award for 2 months of full time work experience.  Application for the Spring Semester Internship to start in January 2020 is now open.  Deadline for submission of completed application is November 1, 2019.

Summer 2020 Internship Program deadline for application is April 1, 2020.  Interested students can visit www.pnsb.org to learn more about the next internship program or they may contact PNSB telephone 488-5424 or email pnsbinternship@gmail.com for more information.

Many young Palauan professionals have returned home and are actively looking for meaningful employment. Local employers interested in hiring these young and hard-working professionals may contact PNSB Office for leads. Hiring these recent college graduates who possess newly acquired skills and knowledge can contribute to Palau’s national development. (PR)
