Providing a promising future of public service leaders, these five students were selected from a highly competitive pool of NYU Washington, DC undergraduate students. Interns have a placement in an office of a Member of Congress (or an approved organization or agency), during spring 2023, where they will 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 develop 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.
