Carnegie internships based in the United States are available to all students and recent graduates. Internships posted will denote whether they are open to remote candidates or limited to those able to work from the DC-metro area.

Pay, Benefits, and Work Authorization

All interns (part or full time) are paid at least $16 per hour. Full-time interns receive a benefits package, and part-time interns are eligible for limited benefits. U.S.-based interns are required to have work authorization for their internship.

* U.S.-based international students typically have work authorization.

What the Interns Gain

Interns are directly embedded with their program or department for their duration and given the opportunity to work directly with senior scholars and program staff. Mentorship is highly valued, and interns can learn from scholars and staff outside of their own program or department. Interns are invited and encouraged to attend training sessions available to Carnegie staff to broaden their skill sets and knowledge.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

We believe our work is enriched and should be informed by a diverse array of perspectives, including race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability, protected veteran status, sexual orientation, gender identity, or any other protected group. We are committed to building a diverse, equitable, and inclusive community among staff, interns, and partners and on our public platform.

Internships can help unlock a career, and Carnegie is committed to ensuring the next generation of foreign policy leaders reflect our diversity. Carnegie works with a group of historically black colleges and universities and minority-serving institutions to ensure that our internship program spans a wide range of diverse backgrounds.
