Summer 2012 Internship Program

The Foreign Policy Initiative is now accepting applications for
the Summer 2012 Internship Program.

The Foreign Policy Initiative (FPI) Internship Program seeks rising college seniors and graduate students of the highest caliber with interest in the fields of, but not limited to, international studies, defense, national security, democracy and human rights, political science, and foreign affairs. FPI interns are given substantial work in current events research, policy communication, and think tank operations. Interns are encouraged to attend stimulating discussions around the local D.C. area and to interact closely with FPI's in-house experts. Though the FPI internship program is unpaid, participants gain marketable skills, a broader understanding of the policy world, invaluable experience, and networking opportunities.

The 2012 Summer Internship Program will run from May until August. Applications must be submitted by Wednesday, March 14th.
