Thank you for your interest in the internship program with The Education Trust. Ed Trust is operating under a full telework structure in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, placing the internship program on hold throughout the Summer and Fall of 2020. We hope to resume offering internship positions in the Winter 2021 term and will be updating this page periodically.
The Education Trust internship program is for individuals who believe that all students can achieve at high levels and who want to work as part of a team committed to that goal. The program is designed for graduate students who are capable of doing staff-level work under minimal supervision. Interns are treated as members of the staff and are expected to perform a wide variety of tasks.
Interns work closely with designated Education Trust staff to develop and execute projects that will advance the organization’s agenda. This allows interns to broaden their professional skills and experiences. Assigned projects are based on the intern’s qualifications and interests as well as the needs of the organization.
Internships are paid positions. The hourly rate depends on the candidate’s education and experience. We discuss this with the applicant if and when an offer is made. Academic credit can be arranged through the intern’s sponsoring institution. All interns are expected to work in our Washington, D.C., office, unless otherwise noted. We are currently looking to fill the following internship position:
