White House Internship Program
The White House Internship Program provides a unique opportunity to gain job experience and an inside look at the life of White House staff while building leadership skills. This hands-on program is designed to mentor and cultivate today’s young leaders, strengthening their understanding of the Executive Office and preparing them for future public service possibilities.
In addition to normal office duties, interns will supplement their learning experience by attending a weekly lecture series hosted by senior White House staff, help at White House social events, and volunteer in community service projects.
White House Internships are full-time unpaid positions and participants are responsible for arranging their own transportation and housing for the duration of the program.
Applicants must be:
- U.S. citizens
- Eighteen years of age on or before the first day of the internship
- Enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate program at a college, community college, or university (two- or four-year institution) or must have graduated in the past two years from undergraduate or graduate school
- A veteran of the United States Armed Forces who possesses a high school diploma or its equivalent and has served on active duty anytime over the past two years
