The purpose of the USAID Learning Activity (ULA) is to further strengthen USAID/Uganda performance and improve the performance of its implementing partners, with a focus on collaborating, learning and adapting, in order to enhance the impact and sustainability of USAID-supported contributions to Uganda’s development. The ULA will achieve this through three objectives:

  • Collaboration: Strengthened collaboration, both internally and with external stakeholders, enables USAID to better leverage expertise, learning and resources; and deepens local ownership.
  • Learning: Systematic learning, through applied research, monitoring and evaluation, informs and improves the relevance, quality and cost- effectiveness of programs and operations
  • Performing: Adaptive management of program implementation and meta-level interventions to improve the quality of USAID program outcomes.

ULA’s Internship Program is anchored within the Performance Improvement Pillar’s capacity to deliver results and rooted in USAID’s vision of fostering local capacity, ownership, and sustainability. The Internship Program aims to build capacity by providing the opportunity for recent graduates to utilize innovation and practice to strengthen their skills in improving program results in research, data management, logistics, monitoring and learning, and administration. There is one (1) total open intern position in the Performance Improvement department.

The selected intern will receive a modest stipend to facilitate/cover commute, communication and daily expenses.

Period of Performance: 

6 months (May 1, 2023 – November 1, 2023) full-time.
