Democratic Staff and Senate Foreign Relations – Spring 2024 Internship Opportunity

The Democratic Staff of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee seeks applicants for a Spring 2024 internship. Interns will work with staff teams to provide research, track hearings and legislation, draft memos, and take notes at high-level meetings. Successful applicants will have excellent research and writing skills, as well as academic or professional experience in international relations or a similar field. Hill experience and MD ties are both a plus. Undergraduate students, graduate students, and recent graduates are all eligible to apply. Law students may apply for a legal internship to work with the SFRC legal team. Additionally, those who would be interested in assisting with committee operations are encouraged to apply. Normal work hours are 9am-6pm Eastern Time, Monday-Friday, and applicants must commit to a minimum of 30 hours per week during those hours. Those with full-time availability are strongly encouraged to apply.

SFRC plans to offer remote and hybrid/in-person internships for the Spring 2024 intern class. However, hybrid/in-person internships are subject to change. A hybrid internship would involve our interns coming into the office on a rotational basis each day of the week. Please note that an in-person internship would require you to be located in the Washington, D.C. area.

This internship is unpaid, although a limited number of stipends are available to highly-qualified candidates who could not otherwise afford to participate in an unpaid internship. Please complete the application by 11:59pm Eastern Time on Friday, October 27, 2023. Only applicants selected for further review will be contacted by SFRC. No Phone Calls Please!
