SUMMER 2022 Junior Policy Fellows Program

The National Defense Industrial Association drives strategic dialogue in national security by identifying key issues and leveraging the knowledge and experience of its military, government, industry, and academic members to address them. NDIA, comprised of its Affiliates, Chapters, and Divisions, with 1,570 corporate and 63,000 individual members, is a non-partisan, non-profit, educational association designated as a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization – not a lobbying firm – and was founded to educate its constituencies on all aspects of national security. Junior fellows will begin work remotely, with the hope to eventually transition to in-person work in NDIA’s office in Arlington, VA. Fellows will be expected to work around 15-20 hours per week and will receive a monthly stipend of $800.

Applications for this opportunity will be accepted on a rolling basis until the positions have been filled.
