The Phoenix Committee on Foreign Relations has been helping Arizona’s leaders in business and economic development become informed of international developments since 1976. The organization looks to, among other things, promote collaboration among international organizations in Arizona and create traffic for the state of Arizona on a global scale. PCFR offers two student programs for graduate and undergraduate students.
PCFR’s Student Fellows (PSF) Program is longstanding, highly competitive and offers just three students a year the incredible opportunity to participate in PCFR events free of charge for that year. The program is designed to expose graduate students who are focused on working with international businesses and industries and are aligned with the mission and programs of PCFR who hope to stay in the Metro Phoenix area following completion of their degree. Fellows are drawn from a pool of highly qualified applicants from universities in the Phoenix area to be a part of this special opportunity. Selections are made based on past international experience and expected future leadership in international affairs or business related to Arizona.
PCFR offers internships during the fall, spring and summer semesters. Applicants must be a college student or recent graduate with a strong interest in international business, economics or politics, non-profits agencies, event planning, and/or public relations. The potential intern positions available include: Research Assistant, Event and Marketing Coordinator, and Intern Program Coordinator. Individuals are eligible to receive college credit for their internship with proper documentation from their university.
