The Democracy: A Journal of Ideas internship is a highly selective program for a small number of the most talented, progressive college writers, editors, and thinkers in America.
While demanding and time intensive, it is geared toward giving college students a link into future careers in the world of progressive ideas. Interns will assist in administrative tasks as well as learn about all the parts of putting a journal together from article selection to copyediting and fact-checking. They should be interested in deepening their exposure to a wide range of policy issues and interacting with some of the most cutting-edge progressive thinkers across a variety of fields.
Applicants should have distinguished themselves in their academic work thus far. The internship is based in Washington, DC. All resumes should be sent to: dajoi@democracyjournal.org​. No phone calls, please.
