The Polish-American Freedom Foundation (PAFF) is currently preparing the next edition of the Polish-American Internship Initiative (PAII).
PAII is a prestigious internship program connecting the leading American companies with outstanding Polish students for summer internships in the United States.
The Program offers an exceptional opportunity for talented Polish students to develop their professional skills through learning from the best. The internships are available for full-time students of the second year and above at Polish universities, with fluent command of English, achieving the highest academic results and who have already shown outstanding abilities and commitment.
The hosting U.S. companies invite one or more interns for a period of 2-3 months (June/July/ August). PAFF and its Polish educational partners recruit and pre-select intern candidates. The final choice rests with the hosting company.
The participating companies are contributing to the success of an important U.S.-Polish initiative. By joining the Program the companies not only strengthen their presence on the Polish market, but also contribute to fostering the cooperation between our countries. Through educating PAII interns, the companies have an invaluable resource that they may use to invest in or to do business on the Polish market. In addition, the participation in PAII enables to significantly reduce the costs of recruiting a foreign intern as the costs are shared between several partners.
The initiative was launched in 2010 by the Polish-American Freedom Foundation (PAFF) in cooperation with the U.S. Embassy in Poland. The operational activities within the Program are carried out by the Educational Enterprise Foundation together with American companies providing internships. PAII is also supported by the Trade & Investment Section, Embassy of Poland in Washington, DC.
During 4 editions of PAII 73 talented and bright interns worked at 8 global corporations.
