Internships take place at the IMF’s headquarters in Washington, D.C. Internship assignments range from 3 to 6 months. During this period, interns work under the supervision of an experienced ITD staff. Internship projects and assignments  vary and are dependent on ITD work program.

Selection Process: 
Interns are selected on a competitive basis. Candidates are short-listed based on their qualifications, their field of specialization, their academic performance record, and their interest. The selection decision, based on how well the candidate’s studies align with the department’s work, is made by the hiring managers.
