Brademas Internship Program

With over a decade of success, the Brademas Center Internship Program is a sponsored competitive opportunity for New York University undergraduate and graduate students to live and work in Washington, DC. Each year, the program receives far more exceptional applicants than funding allows. With your support, our goal is to provide two additional students with full funding to participate in this transformative program.


During the 8 to 10-week summer program, participants are placed in an office of a Member of Congress (or an approved organization or agency), where they 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 work on research projects under the supervision of faculty and fellows affiliated with the Brademas Center. Students also participate in the Young Leaders Network, a program in collaboration with other national centers for the study of Congress. Eight students are currently funded annually through this program. Let's make it 10!


Since these internships are unpaid, the Brademas Center provides a stipend of $5,000 per student to cover their expenses and programming. Your support can stretch the Center's dollars to allow more students into the program. 





About the Center


Inspired by its founder, former Congressman and NYU President Emeritus, the John Brademas Center of New York University pursues a collection of initiatives in the areas which formed the core of John Brademas' life in public service: the state of Congress and the legislative process in democracies; the shifting dynamics in foreign policy and international affairs; and, the present state and future prospects for higher education, the humanities, arts and culture. With a growing reputation as a home for informed and civil debate on politics, public policy and other major issues facing the nation and global community—the Brademas Center undertakes programs at NYU's campuses in New York City and Washington, D.C., and increasingly around NYU’s global network.
