Brookings Institute Summer Internships


Friday, March 10, 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. Interns may work with Brookings staff in research areas like Economic Studies, Foreign Policy, Global Economy and Development, Governance Studies, and Metropolitan Policy. Brookings also offers students the opportunity to intern 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. Internships can be paid, academic for credit, and externally sponsored. The internships are usually 10-12 weeks and located in Washington DC.

Decisions are generally made by March 31st. The program starts June 5th and ends August 11th.
