Internship Opportunities

Christine Mirzayan Science and Technology Policy Internship Program of the National Academies, Washington, D.C.

This Internship Program of the National Academies--consisting of the National Academy of Sciences, National Academy of Engineering, Institute of Medicine, and National Research Council--is designed to engage graduate and postdoctoral students in science and technology policy and to familiarize them with the interactions among science, technology, and government.  As a result, students in the fields of science, engineering, medicine, veterinary medicine, business, and law develop essential skills different from those attained in academia, which will help them make the transition from being a graduate student to a professional.

Applications are now being accepted for the 2004 program.  This year, the internship program will comprise three sessions:

  • Winter: January 12 through April 2 (12 weeks with a possible 4 week extension).
  • Summer: June 1 through August 6 (10 weeks).
  • Fall: September 7 through November 24 (12 weeks).

To apply, candidates should submit an application and request their mentor fill out a reference form.  Both are available by clicking here.

The deadline for applications is November 1 for the Winter program, March 1 for the Summer program, and June 1 for the Fall program. Candidates may apply to all three programs simultaneously. Additional details about the program and how to join the mailing list are also available on the Web site.  Questions should be directed to: internship@nas.edu.
