Description: 

The National Research Center for Women & Families, is a nonprofit think tank and advocacy organization dedicated to improving the lives of women, children, and families. The Center offers Winter, Spring, Summer, and Fall Internships to undergraduate or graduate students or recent graduates who are available at least 12 hours/wk for at least 3 months. Fellowships are available for college graduates, graduate students, and professionals on sabbatical or making a career change who can work at least half-time for at least six months.
 
 
Through these internship and fellowship opportunities you will learn first-hand about the Washington policy scene by gaining hands-on experience in several possible areas including: government relations/public policy development, communications/media relations, and/or non-profit fundraising / development, and, all the while, you will be making a significant difference in the lives of women and families! We are a non-profit that, on a daily basis, truly makes a difference in the lives of thousands of women and their families. We work closely with the national and international media to get our message out to the public. We connect with policy makers and decision makers on a national level to change public policy. We work with independent researchers from around the country to bring fair, unbiased and non-corporate-funded information to the public about timely issues that matter to women and their families such as childhood obesity, the safety of medical products and treatments, domestic and dating violence, and so much more.
 
 
We offer 3 kinds of internship and fellowship experiences:  
1. Communications Internship: Learn how to work with national media and gain experience writing and editing articles, reports, and press releases, and using the Internet to influence people and policies  
2. Research Internship/Fellowship: Develop your research skills and prepare for graduate school or a research position  
3. Policy Internship: Learn about the Washington, DC policy scene while working on a range of health issues that affect women, children, and families!
 
 
The internships are unpaid but some of the fellowships have stipends available.  See website for more information.
