Our Intern Program

Cornerstone’s D.C. Intern Program provides a unique opportunity for selected candidates to gain first-hand policy experience and exposure to the people and processes of the United States Congress and Washington, D.C.

Our program is student-focused and scalable to the demands and capacity of the students. We have successfully accommodated students from second year undergraduates to second year law students and Masters degrees graduates. We seek to ensure that interns who successfully complete our program are prepared to both succeed in an entry-level policy position as well as gain a deeper academic comprehension of the institutions that govern our country. The Intern Program emphasizes effective communications, policy analysis, and research skills with an emphasis on writing.

While our program is perfect for a candidate who can commit to a full-time work schedule, we also regularly accommodate part-time interns.

Cornerstone pays interns $12 per hour. We also work with students who would like to receive credit for their internship.
