The Center on Budget and Policy Priorities (CBPP) is one of the nation’s leading nonprofits working on public policy issues affecting low-income families and individuals. It has a national reputation for conducting rigorous research and analysis, developing policy ideas and strategies, shaping a broad array of policy debates at the federal and state levels, and influencing policy outcomes. It works on budget and tax policy, health care, and a range of other policies and programs important to low- and moderate-income people. The Center’s funding comes from private foundations and individuals.

The Center seeks highly motivated undergraduate and graduate students (including law), as well as recent graduates, in the following areas for full-and occasionally part-time paid internships: Communications, Federal Legislation, Health Policy, Housing Policy, Food Assistance, National Budget and Tax Policy, State Fiscal Project Campaigns, State Fiscal Project and Welfare Reform, Income Support Division, Data Analysis, Development & Fundraising, and Human Resources. 

The Center’s robust internship offers an opportunity to do substantive work alongside policy experts, participate in various learning and networking events, and structured mentorship and professional development. The positions are designed to reflect an intern's interests in conjunction with the Center's needs and the legislative climate. Applicants should have research, fact-gathering, writing, analytic, and computer skills.

Successful interns will have a commitment to the Center’s mission to improve the well-being of low- and moderate-income people and advance racial equity as part of the Center’s work.

To expand the diversity of voices that speak with authority in federal and state policy debates, the Center’s internship program identifies highly motivated candidates — with particular attention to candidates having experience with communities that are underrepresented in policy debates — with a demonstrated interest in working on public policies that affect low-income and diverse communities and have implications for racial equity.

International students are welcome to apply. The Center does not provide financial sponsorship for visas or work permits. You must have documentation of work authorization for the U.S. AND a U.S. Social Security number to be employed by the Center. (Please indicate that you are an international student on the application form.)
