Funded Federal Diversity Internships
The Washington Center (TWC) partners with multiple U.S. federal agencies to offer paid internship programs with the goal of increasing diversity in the federal workforce. These federal agencies recognize that diversity brings innovation and creativity to the workplace, encourages fresh perspectives that inspire new ideas and sparks positive change.
As an intern with a federal agency, you will gain meaningful professional experience and build a valuable network of connections that could open the door to new opportunities in the future. The need is strong for bright, diverse talent at these agencies.
All of the federal internships require that you are a U.S. citizen and enrolled in a degree-granting program, with a preference for a 3.0 or above GPA. There are opportunities for 15-week fall and spring internships and 10-week summer internships.
Nearly all of the federal agencies that we work with transitioned to remote internships due to COVID-19.
