The Center offers a wide range of internship opportunities to current, recent, or returning college students. There are at least 80-90 interns at the Center at any given time. Availability of positions generally corresponds to the beginning of the fall, spring and summer terms. Most internships are unpaid. The Woodrow Wilson Center has two different internship programs with separate applications and deadlines. Many interns are research assistants for our visiting scholars, contributing directly to research on a wide range of projects. Other interns work in staff and program offices. Wilson Center interns have the opportunity to develop both research and professional skills, and to participate in the numerous activities and events held at the Center.
