Internship: Congressional Affairs

The National Endowment for the Humanities’ Congressional Affairs team accepts applications on a rolling basis for Fall Semester, Spring Semester, and Summer internships. In the past, our interns have worked on events in DC and on Capitol Hill, outreach to Congressional staff, and large-scale projects highlighting the NEH’s programs. Interns are responsible for managing invitation lists, drafting briefing memos, assisting with correspondence to Congressional offices, communicating with stakeholders, and assisting with day-to-day office tasks.

We are looking for interns with strong writing and communication skills in addition to a passion for the humanities. Interns must be able to complete tasks in a timely manner, be professional, and pay close attention to detail. We strongly encourage that candidates submit one of the following types of writing samples: news article, press release, newsletter, expository writing, memorandum or a short essay on a humanities topic.

If you have any questions, please contact the NEH Internship Coordinator at 202 606-8317 or @email. We look forward to hearing from you.
