Make your summer smarter. Hire an HKS student as an intern.
Your organization gets the skills, knowledge, and focus of an emerging public policy expert by adding an HKS student intern to your team. In return, they accrue valuable experience and exposure, put their skills and training to work, and deepen their professional knowledge of fields and sectors they envision working in after graduation.
Summer internships typically run 8 to 12 weeks, from late May through August. If your organization doesn’t have internship positions as part of its organizational structure, we will work with you to craft suitable internship opportunities to post to JACK: Jobs and Careers for the Kennedy School, our comprehensive job bank and career management system.
We are encouraging organizations to consider posting opportunities for remote internships during this time of uncertainty around travel.
Summer Internship Funding
Most HKS student interns receive summer stipends from their hiring organizations. If you are from a public or nonprofit organization that cannot provide stipends, HKS has limited funding to support our students on their summer internships. Application deadlines for summer internship funding are early in the spring—students often need an offer in hand to apply for funding.
