A University of Aberdeen PhD student is one of only 60 students chosen to take part in this year's NATO Internship Programme.
Molly Davidson, who is studying a PhD in Politics and International Relations, was selected from more than 4,000 applicants across NATO’s 30 member countries and will begin a six-month internship at NATO’s headquarters in Brussels from 1 March 2021.
Commenting on her selection for the programme, Molly said: “I feel both delighted and fortunate to be offered such a great role with NATO and I’m looking forward to moving to Brussels within the next few weeks. I previously completed a nine-month internship with the United Nations in New York and hope I can bring my experience and knowledge to the defence and security sector which I have a particular interest in.”
The NATO Internship Programme offers students practical work experience and an opportunity to learn from the NATO community within one of 14 divisions.
Molly added: “My role will be part of the Operations Division and I’m most looking forward to meeting the people behind NATO and understanding how the individual teams work together. The internship will also be a fantastic opportunity to be an ambassador for the University of Aberdeen on a global platform, whilst gaining invaluable experience working with a large scale, international organisation.”
