With over a decade of success, the Brademas Internship Program is a sponsored competitive opportunity for New York University undergraduate and graduate students to live and work in Washington, DC. During the 8 to 10 week program, participants are placed in an office of a Member of Congress (or an approved organization or agency), during summer session, where they gain political and policy-making skills at the federal level. Interns 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. Students also participate in the Young Leaders Network, a program in collaboration with other national centers for the study of Congress.

U.S. Veterans

The Brademas Center will provide two internships exclusively to United States military veterans. These students will work with a military liaison to obtain an internship with a Veteran Member of the U.S. Congress, Department of Defense, or another approved agency or organization.
