The Internship Experience
Given our 30 years of experience in public policy research and development, our renowned experts and our strategic location in Washington, D.C. our internship is designed to prepare students who are passionate about public service; students who want to make a difference. We train inquisitive, eager, undergraduate and graduate students by:
•Educating on policy issues which are core to FRC's mission
•Equipping interns for professional careers by providing practical, hands-on research and administrative work experience, overseen by an FRC expert
•Encouraging interns in the exploration of their own career paths
Under the guidance of an FRC expert, interns develop research and writing skills by conducting, compiling and distributing research. FRC's expertise includes areas such as sanctity of life, marriage and family, religious liberty, education, bio-ethics, human sexuality, legislative lobbying and judicial activism.
Applicants must be college upper-classmen (juniors or above are preferred) or graduates who have achieved a 3.0 or higher grade point average. Applications are received on a rolling-admissions basis; there are no admissions deadlines.
Intern placements are made according to the student's interests and experience. Opportunities are available in public policy development, government relations, cultural studies, press and media relations, and state and local affairs. For more information, call: 202-637-4685
FRC interns are paid $200.00 per week. Stipend checks are paid on a bi-monthly basis.
Due to the generosity of our donors, FRC is able to provide free intern housing. FRC interns stay in The Congressional Apartment Building, located one block east of the Supreme Court on Capital Hill. The Congressional is owned by WISH (Washington Intern Student Housing).
The Congressional's location is in the heart of the city, placing interns within walking distance of most of Washington D.C.'s historic sites. Interns can avail themselves of various educational and professional opportunities (lectures, receptions, etc.) in the area.
