Stipend

The WB pays an hourly salary to all Interns and, where applicable, provides an allowance toward travel expenses up to USD 3,000 at the discretion of the manager. These travel expenses can only include transport expenses (airfare) to or from the duty station city. Interns are responsible for their own accommodations. Driven by business needs, most Intern positions are based in Washington, DC with a few others in the WB country offices.  

Selection

After the application period is closed, qualified applicants’ profiles are shared with WB operations and business units who have expressed interest in hiring interns.  After interviews by potential hiring units, selections are made and the new BIP cohort joins in early May.
