Through annual educational and networking events, the National Foundation for Women Legislators (NFWL) supports elected women from all levels of government. As a non-profit, non-partisan organization, NFWL does not take ideological positions on public policy issues, but rather serves as a forum for women legislators to be empowered through information and experience.
NFWL is currently seeking undergraduate student interns to serve as Policy, Communications, Development and Event Assistants. The Foundation hosts interns each summer, fall and spring. Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis so students are encouraged to apply early.
NFWL interns have a unique opportunity to work directly with elected women from across the nation, federal government officials in DC, and members of the private sector on various projects involving public policy, coalition building, international relations, event planning, media relations, and fundraising.
In addition to carrying out various initiatives and programs through NFWL's National Policy Committees, the organization also plans a large Annual Conference, hosted each fall in a different state. The event brings together women elected officials from all levels of government from across the country with corporate leaders, Cabinet officials, and Members of Congress to network and develop policy initiatives to be implemented in their states. Interns who excel in their duties are invited to staff and participate in this special gathering.
This is an unpaid internship. However, students are often able to receive academic credit through programs offered by their universities.
NFWL is looking for hard-working students with the ability to multi-task and independent thinkers who also work well with others and display a professional attitude. Must write well. Both men and women are welcome and encouraged to apply.
