The Center for Studies and Research on Turkey-France Relations (TUFRAM) offers a limited numbers of internships to students of social sciences, especially politics and international relations, law and sociology which can be undertaken during the academic semester.  Through our internships we aim to provide students with the best possible insights into the scientific work and research as well as academic life. The specific arrangement of each internship will be primarily determined by the TUFRAM’s current workload and the student’s respective qualifications and interests. The main workload will be based on the organization of TUFRAM’s academic events, such as conferences, workshops and panel. TUFRAM’s activities are international and offer to students to develop their networks. They allow to students to meet academics, researchers and NGOs’ professional as well as business people mainly from Europe. Our internships are 16 weeks long and free of charge. Unfortunately, the research center cannot offer any financial remuneration to interns. Our interns are expected to finance their internships themselves and to also arrange their own accommodation in Istanbul for the duration of their internships.
