The associate will gain close insight into the work of a major international development organization, work collaboratively with experienced professionals, gain a deeper understanding of development finance; and contribute to ADB's work through research and support of public relations activities.

ADB welcomes motivated, open-minded and self-directed students to apply. The student associate program is a research-oriented learning opportunity for graduate students to research thematic and development issues and to network with representatives from other international organizations in the Washington, D.C. area.

  • Must be familiar with using social media tools;
