PKSOI Internship Program
The United States Army Peacekeeping and Stability Operations Institutes is the one-stop stability and peace operations information conduit for the U.S. Army.
With emphasis on networking and outreach, education, operations, and integration, PKSOI explores new horizons of thought on the challenges confronting the U.S. Government as it works to secure and sustain international peace and stability.
Looking to the future, the Institute continuously examines and attempts to resolve myriad issues unique to peace and stability operations.
Rich experiences and close ties to the peacekeeping and humanitarian relief communities assist PKSOI in meeting the challenges of complex contingencies in peace operations and place it in a pivotal role in interagency peace and stability operations training, education, and leadership development.
War fighting is expensive - in humanitarian and economic terms. No one knows this better than the U.S. Army. Contrary to conventional wisdom, the Army is an organization that "thinks outside the box" and understands the benefit of bringing in new ideas from across sectors. We know that more of the world is unstable than stable and we want to be part of the solution. It is with this spirit that PKSOI provides internship opportunities. We believe they are worthwhile and learning experiences for all of us.
PKSOI's interns are treated as full-fledged members of the organization. Interns are given "real jobs," participate in staff meetings, and organization events just like the full-time staff. Interns create objectives, goals, and are evaluated on the results as part of the internship experience.
Student Employment Experience Program (SEEP)
SEEP provides Federal employment opportunities to students enrolled as degree-seeking students taking at least half-time academic, technical, or vocational courses loads in an accredited high school, technical, vocational, 2 or 4 year college or university, graduate or professional school. It is composed of two components(for more information):
The Student Career Experience Program (SCEP)
SCEP provides experience directly related to academic or career goals. SCEP interns may be noncompetitively converted to term, career, or career-conditional appointments following completion of their internship. SCEP is an Army-wide program but it is funded by the organization; therefore, funding may or may not be available.
The Student Temporary employment Program (STEP)
STEP often referred to as summer hires. Work does not have to be related to academic or career goals. These interns are paid by the Garrison.
This includes any personnel approved by the Director to participate in the PKSOI Intern Program. These interns are normally undergraduate and graduate students from academic institutions to include the Service Academies with a focus in the fields of Peacekeeping and Stability Operations (public administration, political science, security studies, and the like). These internships are not funded by PKSOI and may or may not be funded by their sponsoring academic institution.
