NAFO 2016 Internships

The NAFO internship program is currently accepting applications for 2016.

NAFO established the internship program in 2011 to allow students, post graduates or early career individuals from NAFO member countries an opportunity to improve their skills, enhance their experience and learn about NAFO and its activities. It also provides the Secretariat with additional professional assistance. The results from the internship program have been very successful and are reviewed annually.

In 2016, the program will be available for two (2) terms of three-months each. The deadline for applications is 15 December 2015 and further information can be found on the NAFO website at

We encourage you to circulate this information widely.

Kind regards,
Lisa LeFort
