The Stavros Niarchos Foundation offers a limited number of internships to qualified candidates interested in exploring the world of philanthropy and not-for-profit organizations. The internships provide the opportunity to gain insight into the operations of a philanthropic organization and to experience and understand the philosophy and work of different grantees/organizations that offer a variety of services and programs in the areas of arts & culture, social welfare, education, and health and sports.

The SNF Internship Program involves interns in many different aspects of the Foundation’s activities and treats them as an integral part of the organization, allowing them to learn and acquire various skills as they participate in the Foundation’s work. Positions are available in all three offices of the Foundation, located in New York, Athens, and Monte Carlo.
