UNDP Terms & Conditions for Internship
In accordance with the UNDP Internship policy, UNDP interns are eligible to receive a monthly stipend, with the rate that varies depending on the duty location. The stipend will be paid monthly, and part-time internship arrangements are prorated accordingly.
Where an intern is financially supported by an institution, government or third party, UNDP will, subject to the rules of such institution, government or third party, pay the intern the difference, if any, between the external financial support provided and the applicable UNDP stipend.
Except for the stipend, all other expenses connected with the internship will be borne by the intern, sponsoring the government or institutions.
UNDP accepts no responsibility for costs arising from accidents and/or illness or death incurred during the internship.
The intern must provide proof of enrollment in a health insurance plan;
Interns are not considered staff members and may not represent UNDP in any official capacity
