World Bank Internship Program 2024

Are you a highly motivated individual seeking an opportunity to gain practical work experience while being exposed to the mission and work of the World Bank? Look no further than the World Bank Internship Program (BIP). This program seeks to bring new perspectives, innovative ideas, and research experience into the bank’s work while providing individuals with the chance to improve their skills in a diverse environment.


Internships are available in both development operations and other business units such as Human Resources, Communications, Accounting, and more. However, availability during a given internship term is based on business needs. Most intern positions are based in Washington, DC with a few others in the WB country offices.


The WB pays an hourly salary to all interns and, where applicable, provides an allowance towards travel expenses up to USD 3,000 at the discretion of the manager. These travel expenses can only include transport expenses (airfare) to or from the duty station city. Interns are responsible for their accommodations.

To be eligible for an Internship, candidates must have an undergraduate degree and be enrolled in a full-time graduate study program (pursuing a master’s degree or PhD with plans to return to school full-time). Fluency in English is required, and knowledge of languages such as French, Spanish, Russian, Arabic, Portuguese, and Chinese is desirable. Other skills such as computing skills are advantageous. The Bank Internship Program typically seeks candidates for Operations (Front Line) in fields such as economics, finance, human development (public health, education, nutrition and population), social sciences (anthropology, sociology), agriculture, environment, engineering, urban planning, natural resources management, private sector development, and other related fields; or Corporate support (Accounting, Communications, Human Resources Management, Information Technology, Treasury, and other corporate services).

Upon submission of your application, you will receive an email confirmation providing you with your application number.
