The McCain Institute is a non-partisan do-tank dedicated to advancing character-driven global leadership based on security, economic opportunity, freedom and human dignity - in the United States and around the world.
Statement from Executive Director Amb. Kurt Volker regarding Sen. John McCain:
“On behalf of the staff of the McCain Institute, we wish the Senator and his entire family strength, peace and resolve to face this difficult challenge,” said Amb. Kurt Volker, executive director of the McCain Institute for International Leadership at Arizona State University.
“The McCain Institute was founded on the values that have defined the McCain family for generations – courage to do what is right, leadership defined by character and service to causes greater than one’s self-interest. We know these values will continue to define and support the McCain family during the battle that lies ahead.”
Today is the deadline to apply for the McCain Institute fall internship programs. The Institute offers internships for students and recent graduates in Washington or Phoenix. Interns gain hands-on experience through work with the Institute’s programs, including the Global Rule of Law & Governance program, Human Rights and Democracy program, Human Trafficking program, Next Generation Leaders program, or communications and events.
