Internship -- May 18 Memorial Foundation

The May 18 Memorial Foundation was founded in 1994 with the precious funds of the May 18 victims, Gwangju citizens, overseas Koreans and Korean nationals in order to continue and develop the great democratic spirit and solidarity of the May 18 Democratization Movement. Along with the aims of spreading the history of the struggle and its generous spirit to the global community, we hope to march altogether for the promotion and protection of democracy, human rights and peace building regionally and internationally. (For more information, please go to )

Since 1994, the May 18 Memorial Foundation has been conducting and expanding many projects to commemorate the spirit and struggle of the May 18 Democratization Movement, eventually contribute to the peaceful reunification of Korea; and to work towards peace and human rights throughout the world. 

The Foundation has carried out numerous projects in various fields, including organizing memorial events, establishing scholarships, fostering research, disseminating information to the public, publishing relevant materials, dispensing charity and welfare benefits, building international solidarity, and awarding the Gwangju Prize for Human Rights. 

The International Internship Program strives to contribute to the development of democracy and human rights throughout our international network by recruiting 2 interns from overseas, who have been working for human rights, democracy, and peace building organizations in their home countries, and by giving them an opportunity to experience and learn the history and development process of human rights and democracy in the Republic of Korea, particularly the May 18 Democratization Movement in 1980. Interns will have the chance to exchange and network with Korean civil society groups. They can also choose or will be assigned research during the course of their internship. As interns, they will be assigned particular duties and responsibilities as part of the May 18 Human Rights Resource Exchange Project.
