USAID’s CSP Celebrates the Completion of 76 Student Internships

The Community Support Program (CSP), funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), has recognized the efforts of a third cohort of 76 university students and recent graduates from 11 universities who completed internships in support of USAID-funded projects in Lebanon.

U.S. Embassy Deputy Chief of Mission Richard Michaels, USAID Lebanon Acting Mission Director Nicholas Vivio, and representatives from municipalities, local communities, and 11 USAID-assisted universities attended the ceremony.

Launched in 2020, the USAID-funded internship program under the CSP activity provides graduates and undergraduates the opportunity to gain professional and practical experience to start their careers and generate a temporary income to support their families during the current economic crisis.

"The interns, who are enrolled in the American University of Beirut, American University for Science and Technology, Antonine University, Beirut Arab University, Holy Spirit University of Kaslik, Haigazian University, Islamic University, Lebanese American University, Sagesse University, Notre Dame University, and Saint Joseph University, provide support and technical expertise to municipalities, civil society organizations, agricultural cooperatives, and water establishments that are benefitting from USAID assistance in a range of sectors including water and sanitation, agriculture and rural development, education, and women’s empowerment," USAID said in a statement.

During the ceremony, students received certificates
