NATO Internship Programme 2024

Deadline: 20th of May, 2024

The NATO Internship Program could be right for you if you’d want to get experience working for a military and political alliance that supports security and freedom!

Applications in their third year of university study or recent graduates of a bachelor’s or master’s degree are eligible to apply for six-month internships with NATO. A wide range of knowledge and abilities may be used to internships, which provide chances in fields including finance, science and technology, infrastructure and facilities, operations, political affairs, defense and security, innovation, and communications.

Internships take place at NATO Headquarters in Brussels, Belgium – an exciting city that serves as a meeting point for many European and other international organisations, and a hub of activity and networking for young professionals.


  • Internship stipend: If you are selected for the NATO-funded internship programme, you will receive a monthly stipend (EUR 1,217 2024). This amount changes by year in line with inflation and NATO salary adjustments.
  • Travel: Once the Internship Office has confirmed your start date, you will be provided with a prepaid flight/train ticket from your place of origin at a return economy rate, and for an amount of up to EUR 1,200. If you are traveling to Brussels by car, these costs will be reimbursed.
  • Leave: You will be entitled to 15 days of paid leave during the six-month internship period.
  • In-house training: During the internship, you will take part in an induction programme and monthly briefings to provide you with an overview of NATO’s activities and structure. The briefings present unique opportunities to meet experienced staff and officials from across the Alliance, to discuss topics of interest with them and with other interns. Visits to other institutions, like the European Parliament, will also be organised.


To apply for a NATO internship, you must fulfil below criteria on the date of your application:

  • Age: 21+
  • Nationality: a citizen of a NATO member country
  • Educational status: at least two years of university completed and enrolled in a third year OR having obtained your highest degree less than a year prior
  • Languages: proficiency in one of the two official NATO languages: English or French. A working knowledge of the second is considered an asset. Knowledge of other languages may also be considered an asset for certain positions.

If you are a national of a NATO partner country, you can contact your mission at NATO Headquarters or embassy in Brussels directly for information about potential internships within the mission or embassy.
