Interns provide important research and logistical support to their respective Centers. All interns are encouraged to participate in and attend events hosted by other programs at the Atlantic Council. Interns are also encouraged to pursue their own research projects and to write and publish their own policy briefs or blog posts. Demonstrated interest in international affairs through class work and/or experience is strongly preferred.
The positions are unpaid, but candidates gain valuable skills, experience, knowledge, and contacts in the Washington, DC international policy community. A monthly metro reimbursement is offered, as well as Interview and Resume Workshops, Networking Sessions, and briefings with our Military and State Department Fellows.
Some Programs and Centers of particular interest to ECON majors:
- Global Business & Economics program
- Business Development
- Human Resources
- Strategy Initiative
Application Deadline: April 15. Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis and continue until a successful candidate has been selected. Apply here. Summer internships generally begin in late May and are completed by the end of August.
