Overview

The World Bank Internship offers highly motivated and successful individuals an opportunity to improve their skills while working in a diverse environment. Interns generally find the experience to be rewarding and interesting. The Internship Program is open to students who are nationals of the Bank’s member countries and attracts a large number of highly qualified candidates. The purpose of the Internship is to provide graduate students with a chance to gain exposure to the work of the World Bank Group in the hopes that some will be interested in returning to the Bank for a career after completing their studies. The advantage for the Bank in offering these opportunities to students is that they get temporary assistance from students who are typically very knowledgeable in particular fields. The job descriptions for interns vary. Some interns research particular projects while others actually help design projects and occasionally they participate in Bank missions. The most common fields of study are: economics, finance, human development (public health, education, nutrition, population), social sciences (anthropology, sociology), agriculture, environment, and private sector development. The number of interns hired for a given year are approximately 150-200, depending on the needs of Bank managers and their budget circumstances.
Eligible Candidates
Candidates must possess an undergraduate degree and already be enrolled in a full-time graduate study program (pursuing a Master’s degree or PhD with plans to return to school in a full-time capacity. Generally, successful candidates have completed their first year of graduate studies or are already into their PhD programs. This Program typically seeks candidates in the following fields: economics, finance, human development (public health, education, nutrition, population), social science (anthropology, sociology), agriculture, environment, private sector development, as well as other related fields. Fluency in English is required. Prior relevant work experience, computing skills, as well as knowledge of languages such as French, Spanish, Russian, Arabic, Portuguese, and Chinese are advantageous.
Salary
The Bank pays an hourly salary to all Interns and, where applicable, provides an allowance towards travel expenses. Interns are responsible for their own living accommodations. Most positions are located in Washington, DC (some positions are offered in country offices) and are a minimum of four weeks in duration.

Summer (June-September)
The application period for the Summer is December 1 – January 31 each year.

    This is definitely interesting as what I know the UN (Secretariat) does not pay interne at all, Instead according to your post, the world bank does pay hourly rate. That is a good news for students.
