Our interns gain real-world experience, get academic credit and make a difference!

The National Partnership for Women & Families offers several communications, economic justice, health policy, and reproductive justice internships throughout the year for academic credit year-round (fall, spring, summer) and a limited number of paid internships during the summer.

Fall and Spring Internship Program

The National Partnership offers internships during the fall and spring semesters only to students who are receiving academic credits from an accredited college or university. Students who receive academic credit for an internship may or may not receive remuneration from a third-party for their participation in an internship program. The National Partnership does not pay individuals who intern during the fall or spring semester; we will work with your college or university to help you fulfill requirements associated with receiving academic credit for your internship.

Summer Internship Program

During the summer, the National Partnership offers three types of internships:

1) Internships for academic credit — students receive academic credit from an accredited college or university for a summer internship with the National Partnership. Students who are only receiving academic credit and who spend three or more days per week at the National Partnership will receive a stipend in the amount of $50 per week to defray the cost of transportation and food.

2) Internships with remuneration from a third party — students receive remuneration from a third-party, like their school or another organization, for their participation in an internship program (these students may or may not receive academic credit in addition to remuneration from a third party).

3) Internships paid by the National Partnership — the National Partnership has a limited number of paid internship positions during the summer. National Partnership paid interns will be paid $15/hour for up to a 10-week internship.
