VU Office of Federal Relations Spring Intern

Posted by on Monday, October 10, 2022 in Announcements .

The Vanderbilt University Office of Federal Relations seeks an intern for the Spring semester.

The next deadline is November 4, 2022 – for the Spring semester. We’re hoping for a student to join us from campus (remote from our DC-based office) for approximately 10 hours per week. If you have any students who might be interested, please forward the information along!

Our Spring 2023 intern will support our office’s efforts to promote a number of Vanderbilt University’s priorities, which include research policy and higher education policy. The ideal candidate would have a strong interest in the federal policy process and issues of interest to the university. Strong writing and critical thinking skills are a must!

The internship lasts up to 16 weeks, beginning in mid-January and concluding in late-April; the exact dates will be determined in consultation with the successful candidate.

Students can find details about the internship on Handshake (it should be listed as “VU Office of Federal Relations Internship” and have Job #7067810) or on our website. The deadline for applications is November 4, 2022. Applications can be submitted either via Handshake or directly to me in email.
