Executive Internship
Center for American Progress

Job Code:
B26269
Location: USA –  Washington, DC

Description –

The American Progress Executive Office is responsible for directing and overseeing all policy developments and educational and communication outreach at the organization. Exposure to all aspects of the organization’s work—educational efforts, policy initiatives, and administrative organization—will provide interns with unique insight into the workings of a fast-paced, nonpartisan public policy research institution dedicated to finding progressive and pragmatic solutions to significant domestic and international problems.

Executive Office interns will learn many of the basic management and policy-related skills it takes to work at a progressive nonprofit from a front-row seat. Interns perform a variety of activities, including short web-based research assignments, maintenance of the department’s event folders, and assisting with the preparation of meetings for the board of trustees and board of directors. Interns will have the opportunity to attend most American Progress-sponsored events, including policy forums with leading experts on critical issue areas and progressive film screenings.

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.

Internship application: PDF or RTF
