About The McCain Institute Program
Each summer the McCain Institute for International Leadership gives students and recent graduates the opportunity to explore and research issues critical to national security, human freedom, and democracy. We actively promote leadership and decision-making amongst our interns and encourage young leaders to be inquisitive, open to spirited discussion with staff and faculty, and be actively involved in the daily operations of the McCain Institute. Interns will not be sidelined in our institution, but rather their contributions will play an integral role in shaping real policy. This experience will be a launching point for their future careers in Foreign Service, international relations, and work in the humanitarian arena.
In return, we will strive to mentor our interns and introduce them to international policymakers in Washington, DC. Additionally, interns will take part in weekly activities in the DC area, including foreign policy debates, Congressional hearings, and the opportunity to use our state of the art Decision Theater for simulations, modeling, and war games.
Please submit a resume, cover letter explaining your area of interest, brief writing sample and one letter of recommendation to the Internship Coordinator, Ms. Rebecca Schneider at: email@example.com The deadline for summer applications is April 15th and all internships are unpaid.
