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. Interns will also assist in maintaining the website and blog, and in promoting the journal and events. 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. Excellent research and writing skills are a must.
We hire interns for three internship cycles: spring semester, summer, and fall semester. Spring and fall semester interns are expected to work 20 hours a week, and will be paid a stipend of $250/month. Summer interns are expected to work full-time (40 hours/week), and will be paid $600/month.
The internship is based in Washington, DC. Send a cover letter, resume, and 2-3 writing samples to: firstname.lastname@example.org
