Domestic Policy Internship
Center for American Progress

Job Code:
B26266
Location: USA –  Washington, DC

Description –

The Domestic Policy team focuses on five key policy areas: education, health care, immigration, poverty, and women’s health and rights. In pursuing significant change in these areas, team members regularly produce policy proposals, host panel discussions to further public discourse, and work to build relationships with other organizations working in their area of concentration. Team members also work with the Communications and External Affairs teams to bring attention to their work from both the media and Congress.

Domestic Policy interns are typically matched with the analyst group working on an issue of particular importance and/or interest to them. Interns learn many of the basic skills it takes to become a public policy professional in a progressive nonprofit from a front-row seat. They are involved in all core activities of the team and are assigned day-to-day activities to help integrate them into the work. Responsibilities may include: web-based research and writing in their issue area, compilation and analysis of data and data trends, and support for policy events. Interns are also encouraged to take full advantage of the many events at American Progress, as well as events, briefings, and hearings that take place on the Hill and throughout Washington, D.C.

Other duties may include conducting targeted research and reporting on policy meetings, seminars, hearings, and lectures. Whenever possible, interns are encouraged to write on the subject of their choice either as a contributor to a larger final piece or as an individual author of a column for the website.

Eligibility: All high school, undergraduate, master's level, Ph.D., and J.D. students are eligible to apply. People are also eligible if they are a veteran or a recent college graduate within six months of graduation.

All summer interns work full time and a minimum of 8 weeks, although 10 weeks is preferred. During the fall, winter, and spring, part-time students are accepted, but interns must be able to commit to a minimum of 20 hours per week. International students must be able to provide documentation that shows they are allowed to work in the United States.

Application process: In order to be considered for an internship with American Progress, please submit the following:

  • Internship application (links below)
  • Cover letter and resume
  • Writing sample of approximately three pages
  • College or university transcript
  • Recommendation letter(s) (optional)

Please note that only those individuals whose qualifications match the current needs of the organization will be considered applicants and receive responses from American Progress.
