Thank you for your interest in employment and educational opportunities at the International Uyghur Human Rights and Democracy Foundation. The International Uyghur Human Rights and Democracy Foundation has very limited, competitive educational opportunities available, and all internships with the IUHRDF are unpaid unless otherwise noted. IUHRDF is an Equal Opportunity Employer, and encourages diversity in the workplace. Unfortunately, due to the nature of the educational opportunities offered at this organization, strictly undergraduate and graduate, full-time students are eligible to apply.   

Completed applications should be sent by email or mail to Mr. Omer Kanat,, with the subject line “Name-Vacancy Title-Date (mm/dd/year).” If you would rather send application materials by mail, please feel free to send them to our headquarters in Washington, DC:

1420 K Street NW

Washington, DC 20005-2531
Once your completed application is received, you will receive a confirmation between 24 and 48 hours after receipt. Due to the high volume of applications and correspondence we receive each day, the IUHRDF is unable to provide individual feedback on applications.
