Applications for the new White House Internship program are now open and will close on Friday, June 24. The program is a public service leadership and development program, and this year will be the first time in history that interns will be paid. This will help provide an equal opportunity for low income and first-generation professionals.
Funding for the incoming interns comes from bipartisan legislation, and will provide internships across the Executive Office of the President. The internships are 14 weeks and will take place in the fall and be in person. Participants must be U.S. citizens, at least 18 or older as of the program start date and meet at least one of the following criteria:
• Currently enrolled in an accredited undergraduate or graduate degree program at a college, community college, or university (two- to four-year institution)
• Graduated from an accredited undergraduate or graduate program at a college, community college, or university (two- to four-year institution) no more than two years prior to the first day of the program
• A veteran of the United States Armed Forces who possesses a high school diploma or its equivalent and has served on active duty, for any length of time, no more than two years prior to the first day of the program
