The Hinckley Institute boasts one of the nation’s longest-standing Washington, DC, internship programs, dating back to 1965. 

We provide more than 100 students annually with full-time, paid internships in a variety of government institutions, public advocacy groups, and media/consulting firms.

Hinckley interns are provided internship scholarships to cover expenses (if internship is unpaid), subsidized housing in central DC apartments, and up to 12 hours of academic credit.

It is too good an opportunity to miss!
