Please note that the ICC is not able to provide participants in the Internship and Visiting Professionals Programme with remuneration, nor is it possible to provide reimbursement for any expenses incurred during the internship or placement. Accordingly, applicants must have the necessary resources or other financial support for the duration of the internship or placement for which they wish to be selected.
If a State Party to the Rome Statute decides to provide a donation to the Internship and Visiting Professionals Programme, it may be possible to offer a limited number of candidates a stipend and travel, as applicable. If funding is available and when a candidate is selected, the Human Resources Section will conduct an assessment determining eligibility for funding in accordance with the Court’s Policy on Internships and Visiting Professionals and relevant funding conditions. Candidates eligible for funding shall receive detailed information and further instructions after the selection process assuming they meet the conditions of the VA and are considered for the vacancy. Stipends will always be agreed at the time of offering the internship or placement: no funding will be provided at a later stage.
