The accounting department at AEI oversees the budget and operations of the organization. This internship position provides a hands-on opportunity to learn about the non-profit financial environment. Interns will assist with the day to day activities including but not limited to account analysis schedules, preparation of detail account schedules for the annual financial audit and tax filing, account payables and account receivables, financial reports, and other accounting processes as required. The ideal intern candidate will be a great team player, who is organized and detail oriented with a strong knowledge of Excel. Previous experience with non-profit accounting is preferred but not required.
Intern Scholarship Program
In the spring of 2020, AEI will offer up to six intern candidates a $1,000 monthly living stipend as part of a new need-based scholarship program. Our hope is to allow students who would not be able to do so without financial assistance to reap the academic, professional, and personal benefits of interning at AEI. Applications will be accepted and reviewed on a rolling basis until late November. The scholarship application will be posted at aei.org/internships very soon. Please check back for more details next week.
