FDD has opened their internship applications for the spring 2023 semester and looking to build a strong cohort! This spring, we’re offering both hybrid and fully remote options. All internships are unpaid, but we offer internship credit and an abundance of networking opportunities. We offer both part-time and full-time positions with part-time internships requiring a minimum of 22 hours per week. The formal start date of the spring program is January 10th and will end May 19th.  Note that there is flexibility with the start and end date if necessary

Based in downtown Washington, D.C., the Foundation for Defense of Democracies has a number of internship opportunities available during the spring, fall and summer semesters. All FDD interns will have the opportunity to participate in a twice-monthly speaker series, which brings high-level DC officials and senior staff members to engage with interns in an intimate setting. FDD interns will be encouraged to build on their academic skills by working closely with senior staff. FDD is also happy to assist students who wish to earn academic credit for this internship. All internships are unpaid. Applications will be considered on a rolling basis. It is recommended that interested candidates submit applications early.

Please specify the department(s) for which you would like to be considered (feel free to indicate preferences) in your cover letter. While you may use the same cover letter for multiple positons, please submit a separate application for each position of interest. Incomplete applications will not be considered. For general inquiries, email: Internships@fdd.org.
