The Democratic Staff of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee seeks applicants for a fall 2021 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 NJ 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. 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.
At this time, SFRC has not yet determined whether in-person internship opportunities will be available during the fall session. In your application, you may indicate your availability and preference for remote and in-person internships. Please note that an in-person internship will 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 send the completed application form (https://www.foreign.senate.gov/download/sfrc-intern-application), resume, cover letter, and an optional diversity statement, all in PDF format, to firstname.lastname@example.org by 11:59pm Eastern Time on Friday, June 25, 2021. Only applicants selected for further review will be contacted by SFRC.
