How To Apply

internships@winwithoutwar.org

To apply, please submit the following to internships@winwithoutwar.org:

  • A cover letter (please include your desired start date, end date, and weekly schedule)
  • Your resume
  • If currently or recently enrolled in school, a copy of your transcript (can be unofficial)
  • A list of 2-3 references (please include their name, relationship to you, and contact information)
  • A short writing sample (1-3 pages, non-academic strongly preferred, an excerpt from a longer sample is fine, on a relevant topic if possible. Feel free to include a few social media posts for an organization/page as well if you have written any.)

The Win Without War coalition is composed of organizations representing a diverse and inclusive movement to radically shift American foreign policy away from a violence-first approach. We want our team to include Foreign Policy leaders who recognize the communities and the causes it impacts and reflect the diversity of the United States. Thus, communities disproportionately harmed by the militaristic nationalism driving U.S. foreign policy and underrepresented in the broader field of foreign policy are strongly encouraged to apply.

Win Without War is a program of the Center for International Policy. The Center for International Policy is an equal opportunity employer. Women, people of color, persons with disabilities, immigrants, refugees, Muslims, veterans and LGBT candidates are strongly encouraged to apply. We can’t wait to hear from you!
