Interns spend approximately 10 weeks remotely working alongside leading experts in government and academia from all over the world. Brookings also offers students the opportunity to intern in departments such as communications, human resources and central operations management. The mission of the Internship Program is to provide students with a pre-professional learning experience that offers meaningful, practical work experience related to their field of study or career interest. Students engage in career exploration and development as well as learn new skills.
Interns will have the opportunity to attend virtual meetings, think tank events, professional development workshops, and public Brookings events. In addition, interns will have the opportunity to network with other interns throughout the Institution. This is a hybrid opportunity, hybrid work combines regular in-person presence at our Washington, DC, office with the option of remote work.
This internship is an opportunity for undergraduate students in their junior or senior year and graduate students with an interest in advancing global sustainable development to apply principles and theory learned in the classroom in a professional environment.
