Summer Internship (May – August 2023)

ASP is looking for current or recently graduated students interested in hands-on public policy experience for full- and part-time internships. Interns will support ASP researchers and staff in multiple areas including communications, development, programming and research and will be responsible writing blog posts, event reviews, and contributing to reports. This internship offers a rare opportunity in DC to publish under one’s own name.

ASP’s internship program offers interns the opportunity to work on issues across sectors and encourages participants to attend events in and around Washington, D.C that relate to their field of study or interest. At the conclusion of the internship, outstanding interns may be eligible to remain connected to the organization as Adjunct Junior Fellows, when appropriate.

These internships are intended for in-person work beginning May 22, with some telework flexibility.

Our current needs are in the following areas:

  1. Climate Security
  2. Public Diplomacy
  3. Energy Security
  4. National Security Strategy (all purpose/cross disciplinary)
  5. U.S.-Russia Relations

Please clearly indicate the research field(s) in which you are interested in working.

Applicants for the internship should send a 1.) cover letter, 2.) resume, 3.) references, and a 4.) short writing sample (2 pg. max) by March 24  to Matthew Wallin at
