JMI Internships

Summary for Internship

The James Madison Institute (JMI) internship program operates year-round, generally organized by college semesters. College students are given the opportunity to gain valuable experience in the field of public policy. Interns are assigned to JMI staff members to gain hands-on experience while improving their research, analytical, and writing skills.

Students of all majors are encouraged to apply; however, preference is given to students with backgrounds in economics, public policy, political science, communications, development, or any related fields. JMI internships are unpaid, but prospective interns are encouraged to contact their college or university to see if the internship qualifies for academic credit. Housing is not provided by the Institute.

To apply, please complete the application below and submit your resume, along with a writing sample and a headshot. You will receive an email confirming that JMI has received your application. Please do not call to confirm.

We are fortunate to receive more than 100 applications a year for fewer than 10 positions per semester. If you are not chosen for an internship in your semester of choice, you will receive an email encouraging you to apply for a future semester.

Please clearly state if you are applying for our Tallahassee or Naples location internship positions in your cover letter. Thank you and we look forward to your application!

For more information, contact Becky Liner, Executive Vice President, at (850) 386-3131 or bliner@jamesmadison.org
