Meet our past interns

“Serving as an intern on the Outreach Team has been a wonderful experience. We are a growing team, and my projects are always different and engaging. Whether it’s helping ensure we host successful events, researching potential supporters around the country, or developing and improving our tracking mechanism, my work helps support this rapidly developing team.”
“As the policy intern for the USGLC, I’ve had the opportunity to learn about the various policies that influence the objectives of American foreign aid and the forms it takes. Every day is exciting as I read and summarize reports that are released by major organizations and attend events where policymakers talk about the important issues of the day. Working here has been an interesting and valuable experience and it has certainly helped me in my professional development.”
“During this internship, I have learned so much about how the foreign affairs budget is created and approved. I’ve gained a stronger understanding about the legislative process  and how organizations like USGLC can engage with legislators. As a result, I’ve developed a lot of new, useful skills that are sure to help me in the future.”
“Serving as the Communications Intern has been an incredibly rewarding experience. I’ve had the opportunity to work alongside members from each of the other departments on a number of unique and exciting projects that are central to the organization’s mission. Having the chance to dive right in to the heart of USGLC’s work has taught me so many new skills that I never would have learned in the classroom.”
“My time here at USGLC has proven invaluable in developing the necessary skills to make the transition from student to part of the work force as smooth as possible. For students or recent grads, especially those with an affinity for the inter-workings of this country’s foreign affairs budget, I cannot imagine a more beneficial internship.”
