Council for Strategic Affairs: Internship Opportunities

The Council for Strategic Affairs has a number of internship opportunities available during the spring, fall, and summer semesters. All CSA interns will have the opportunity to participate in our twice-monthly round table discussion and the distinguished speaker series programs, which bring high-level academics, strategic thinkers, and domain experts to engage with interns in an informal setting. CSA interns will be encouraged to build on their academic skills by working closely with senior colleagues and associates. CSA is also happy to assist students who wish to earn academic credit for this internship. All internships are unpaid and without any medical or other benefits. Applications will be considered on a rolling basis. It is recommended that interested candidates submit applications early.

Please specify the topic (s) for which you would like to work during the internship (feel free to indicate preferences) in your cover letter. While you may use the same cover letter for multiple fields of studies, please submit a separate application for each area of interest. Incomplete applications will not be considered.
