Mentorship is one of the pillars on which FPRI stands. The Institute prides itself in providing training to its interns – mostly college students, but some high school students as well – in research and policy analysis, editorial and verbal skills, and in the field of international relations broadly.  From time to time, we are proud to showcase exceptional work produced by FPRI interns – in the form of blog posts, E-Notes, infographics, or even podcasts and E-books; hence, the establishment of this page – Interns’ Corner – on the FPRI website. FPRI interns have gone on to hold key posts in the US government, including first US Ambassador to Kosovo, Coordinator for Counterterrorism in the State Department, Special Advisor to the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Strategic Advisor to the Commander of Cyber Command, even Undersecretary of Defense. Also, as of this writing, one FPRI senior fellow, one FPRI Fox Junior Fellow, and one Harvey Sicherman Scholar at FPRI are all former interns.
