Brookings Institute Fall Internships


Friday, July 7, 2017

The Brookings Internship program provides an opportunity for undergraduate and graduate students from diverse backgrounds to engage in career exploration and development as well as a chance to learn new skills. It provides students and recent graduates with a pre-professional, meaningful and practical work experience related to the student’s field of study or career interest.  Interns may work with Brookings staff in their research areas – Economic Studies, Foreign Policy, Global Economy and Development, Governance Studies, and Metropolitan Policy – or in departments such as communications, human resources and central operations management.

Interns will have the opportunity to attend internal meetings, local think tank events, professional development workshops, and public Brookings events as well as participate on Brookings sports teams and network with other interns throughout the Institution.

Brookings offers three types of internships- paid, academic for credit, and external sponsorship. 

Fall internships will be posted May 22nd, and applications are due July 7th. The program runs from September 11th to December 8th.
