Thank you for your interest in interning with The Education Trust. We will open the application process for Summer 2018 internships in March. Be sure to check back then for details about open positions and to apply.
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 undergraduates, recent graduates, and 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 Ed 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 typically 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. Unless otherwise noted, all interns are expected to work in our Washington, D.C., office.
