Intern: Spring 2020
DCFPI has one intern in the fall, spring, and summer semesters. The typical length of an internship is one semester (approximately 10-12 weeks). We are currently accepting applications for Spring 2020. Decisions will be made in November.
Intern projects are designed in conjunction with DCFPI’s needs as well as the intern’s skills and interests. Work may include assisting with research projects, writing blogs, covering hearings, and attending coalition meetings.
Applicants should have a strong commitment to social, economic, and racial justice. Use your cover letter to tell us how an internship with DCFPI will help you as you think about your career path. We’re eager to attract candidates who would especially benefit from working with us, including those seeking their first policy experience or those who are first-generation college students. Applicants should expect to do a mix of research, writing, and administrative tasks. Knowledge (and love) of DC is a plus.
