Host a Summer Intern

Bring our Talent to your Organization for the Summer

Each summer over 300 Harvard Kennedy School students earn valuable experience, develop new skills, and learn about new fields and industries by pursuing meaningful public service internships.

Summer internships generally run between eight and twelve weeks, from late May through August. Most organizations will pay interns a stipend for the summer. However, if your organization's resources are constrained, the School does provide limited funding for summer internships. Summer funding deadlines can come as early as February and March, and students often need an offer in hand to apply for funding.

For guidance in creating a suitable internship opportunity for our students, please contact our Employer Services team or consult our HKS Internship Guidelines (link to pdf). When your job description is ready, you may post the opportunity in JACK or email the posting to our office.
