Internship opportunities abound in our nation’s capital. From legislative internships on Capitol Hill to positions with think tanks and advocacy groups, there is truly something for everyone. You don’t have to be interested in government work to land a great internship in Washington, DC. Our staff is here to assist with placement, but students are strongly encouraged to do background research on their own. What’s great about the Washington Academic Internship Program is that we don’t have a pre-arranged set of internships that use each quarter. Rather, we work hard to match students with internships sites that are aligned with their respective policy and career interests.
While there are near-limitless internship possibilities in Washington, feel free to use these examples of past internships to help get you started with your search-process.
