Intern Research Papers






Internship Information

After our 6th successful year with placements at The White House and several Congressional Offices, the John Brademas Center will once again sponsor a competitive Congressional Internship Program for New York University undergraduate and graduate students (alternative options for placements will be made availalbe to graduate students, which includes a more robust research project). During the 8 to 10 week program, participants will be placed in an office of a Member of Congress (or an approved organization) where they will have an opportunity to gain political and policy-making skills at the federal level. The interns will develop an advanced understanding of how Congress works to enact our nation's laws and will work on research projects under the supervision of faculty and fellows affiliated with the Center.
