The Third World Studies Center (TWSC) welcomes applicants to its Volunteer-Internship Program (VIP). The TWSC VIP is designed for undergraduate, graduate, and foreign exchange students of the University of the Philippines with particular interest in critical political economy, democratization and political culture. The program provides an opportunity for volunteers-interns to assist in and learn from the various research, publications, and training projects and activities of the Center. It is a non-salaried program and does not guarantee future employment in the organization.

The TWSC only selects five interns-volunteers. Applicants must be at least:

· junior status and enrolled in an institution of higher education at the time of application,
· in good academic standing,

· able to complete specific assignments on deadlines.

Preference will be given to students who require internship credits, and/or whose academic work (thesis, etc.) relates with any of the TWSC’s research focus. TWSC encourages long-term volunteer/internship work, and will give preference to applicants who can stay with the Center for a minimum period of three months and can work for at least 50 hours a month.
