Internships

The Wilson Center is closely monitoring guidelines established by the CDC and other federal and state authorities surrounding COVID-19. At this time, the Center intends to continue its virtual model for the Fall, as created and honed during the Spring and Summer terms. The Center has developed a research-based, in-depth, and phased reopening plan, which considers and includes all WC community members, including its interns. In the event that it is deemed safe for interns to come in-person to the Center by the Reopening Committee, each intern and their respective supervisor will mutually determine the viability of either continuing their internship remotely or allowing the intern to come into the Center on an intermittently scheduled, ad-hoc basis. The Internship Coordinator will keep Fall 2020 and Spring 2021 applicants up to date with any new information as it becomes available. Applicants that have a strong preference for interning remotely for the duration of their internship are encouraged to state this in their cover letter. We encourage any interested applicants to continue to apply as usual, and to email internships@wilsoncenter.org with any questions or concerns that they may have.

The Center offers a wide range of part-time internship opportunities to current, recent, or returning college students. Wilson Center interns have the opportunity to develop both research and professional skills, and to participate in the numerous activities and events held at the Center.

There are at least 80-90 interns at the Center at any given time. Availability of positions generally corresponds to the beginning of the fall, spring, and summer terms. Most internships are unpaid. The Wilson Center has two different internship programs (Research Assistant internships and Staff Assistant internships) with separate applications and deadlines.
