Interning at the DNC is a unique opportunity for hardworking, passionate future leaders to gain real life, hands-on experience in Democratic politics, strengthen their understanding of the political process and prepare for future political opportunities. The DNC Internship Program provides a $3,000 stipend. Housing is not provided.

In addition to typical intern duties, you will have the chance to volunteer in grassroots organizing, assist at DNC functions, receive personal development training, attend tours across Washington, D.C., and network with DNC leadership and staff. Each department offers you a unique learning experience — learn more about each department here.

In light of recent events surrounding COVID-19, the Democratic National Committee’s Internship Program will transition to a remote platform for the summer term. At this time, the summer 2020 application is now closed. The volume of applications we have received demonstrates how dedicated Democrats everywhere are ready to jump into the 2020 campaign with enthusiasm. With this in mind, there are other opportunities to participate and join the fight!

2020 GENERAL ELECTION TALENT BANK: We also continue to encourage former primary campaign staff and interested parties to submit their resumes to the 2020 General Election Talent Bank as we share current job openings and training opportunities to support Democratic candidates. We’re committed to taking this robust talent pipeline and staffing campaigns and state parties across the country.

As we continue to monitor the situation, we will provide updates regarding the program on our site. We appreciate your excitement about the Democratic National Committee and hope you will continue to support the Democratic Party.
