Status and entitlements of interns at UNDP
All expenses before and after the beginning of your internship, such as travel from your home country and your return there, are to be borne by you. Your internship springs from your own personal initiative, and as such is part of your ongoing studies; it entails no commitment on the part of UNDP. The internship programme being not connected with recruitment, the granting of an internship should not be interpreted in any way as a preliminary step to recruitment to the Secretariat.
