Office of Federal Relations Internship

The Office of Federal Relations invites Vanderbilt University and/or Washington, DC-area undergraduate or graduate students who have ties to Tennessee and are interested in higher education and science public policy issues to apply for our summer, fall or spring internships.

The summer internship is a full time (40 hour a week) commitment. To apply for the summer internship experience, please email your cover letter and resume by April 1.

The fall and spring semester internship is a full or part time commitment. We will work with you to coordinate an appropriate start and end date and weekly schedule based around your classes.

While the internship is unpaid, we are willing to work with you to earn academic credit and may be able to provide a modest supplement for public transportation expenses. Please contact Christina West for additional information.
