Competitive Internship and Fellowship Opportunities

Highly-competitive internship and fellowship opportunities in Washington, D.C. will be posted on these pages and updated on a regular basis. Some opportunities may be available for future terms (i.e. spring internships may also be available in the summer) depending on the needs of the office/organization.

Though many opportunities could fall into more than one category, they are organized here by best fit. You are encouraged to explore any section that interests you!
