ASEAN Foundation Internship Programme

The ASEAN Foundation seeks passionate and capable interns to support the communications, programmes and operation function of the organisation. 

To solidify and further explore the potential of the ASEAN youths, the ASEAN Foundation provides an Internship Programme. The programme offers undergraduate and postgraduate students from the ten ASEAN member countries and the dialogue partners to engage in a two to six-month-long internship programme that provides a wide range of learning activities and contributes to ASEAN community-building processes towards a dynamic, prosperous, and resilient region.

The interns are working under the Foundation's key working units, such as Programme Unit, Communications Unit, and Operations Unit, to further unleash their skills and potential. The interns are tasked to work on a day-to-day basis with responsibilities surrounding programme and research proposal development, implementation, and monitoring. They might also be asked to develop contents for the Foundation’s social media platforms for better outreach.


This opportunity is open until 30 April 2024. The internship is available at our three units of work: communications, operations and programme. Click the links below to learn more and apply:

In this internship program, you'll have the opportunity for hybrid working, which includes working from the Foundation's office located in the ASEAN Secretariat Heritage Building, Jakarta, Indonesia, as well as the flexibility to work remotely from home, based on an agreed working schedule with the AF relevant staff. While this internship offers valuable experience, it is an unpaid programme.

"During my internship, I was equally given administrative, technical, and creative tasks. Working remotely is not so bad if you are assigned to challenging projects. My internship is no doubt a value-adding experience to my career!"

"I indeed learned a lot during my internship with the ASEAN Foundation. My skill set was definitely enhanced through the tasks assigned and I thank the Programme Team for giving me that opportunity. Although I’ve only started to learn about the importance of being an aware ASEAN citizen in recent years, I am honoured to have been able to get involved towards building my own and others’ ASEAN Identity."
