Sponsor a Congressional Policy Intern

Sponsor an ISF Congressional Policy Intern and provide students and young professionals with real-world, one-of-a-kind experience on the Hill.


ISF's Congressional Policy Internship provides an inside look on how Congress works during students' Spring, Summer, or Fall semesters. Interns work side-by-side with members and staff on the Hill, observing the legislative process, developing research skills related to public policy, and assisting full-time staff with their duties. Participants leave the program inspired to run for office, take jobs in Congress, or start their own meaningful policy- or advocacy-related initiatives.

For policy students interested in a career in government, the internship provides a unique opportunity to learn how to impact and implement policies focused on remedying injustice and creating a more equal, equitable world for all
