Internships at the MCC Washington Office allow students and recent graduates to learn about the legislative issues that form the basis for MCC's work in Washington and to participate in all aspects of office life and work.
We offer three internship terms each year. The dates for each are flexible and depend on the selected intern’s availability. Longer internships of 2-3 terms will also be considered, based on the intern’s interest and the office’s needs. Both full-time and part-time internships are available.
- Summer Term (June-August); applications will be reviewed starting April 1.
- Fall Term (Sept-Dec); applications will be reviewed starting July 1.
- Winter/Spring Term (Jan-April); applications will be reviewed starting November 1.
Internships will focus on U.S. policy related to either domestic policy (e.g. immigration, domestic poverty) or foreign policy.
To apply for an internship, please submit a letter of inquiry and resumé. In the section "Specific Assignments" please note clearly that you are interested in an internship at the MCC Washington Office.
Your letter of inquiry should include the following information:
- several paragraphs outlining your goals for the internship (and, if applicable, any connection with MCC or an Anabaptist congregation or school)
- dates and how many hours/week you are available during that time;
- whether your interest is in the internship focused on U.S. domestic policy or U.S. foreign policy.
Please note that internships are unpaid. Interns are responsible for their own room/board. The MCC Washington Office will make a modest contribution toward the cost of local transportation.
