Brookings Internship Program Overview


The Brookings Internship Program is an opportunity for degree-seeking students from diverse backgrounds to engage in career exploration, personal and professional development, and practical skill building related to an individual’s field of study or career interest. Internships may be within a Brookings research program (e.g.,Governance Studies, Global Economy and Development, Brookings Metro, Economic Studies, or Foreign Policy) or one of Brookings’s central business units (e.g., Human Resources, Executive Office, Finance, Development, Facilities, Communications). The type of work varies by intern position, and may include projects related to research, administrative tasks, communications, and more.

Interns are embedded within the day-to-day work at Brookings and alongside the curated learning experiences for the intern cohort, they are encouraged to partake in internal and external events, local networking opportunities, social and community programming, staff professional development, and may join employee-led professional networks and affinity groups during their internship. All open internships can be found here.
