The Office of Economic Policy, U.S. Treasury Department is currently looking for college students interested in Economics, Finance, or Public Policy for their Fall 2017 internship session. The program runs year round with three sessions: January through May, May through August, and September through December. Interns are generally assigned a long-term research project as well as smaller projects. They are also expected to attend Congressional Hearings and think tank lectures and presentations and summarize these events for the Assistant Secretary and other senior level economists. Candidates should have strong writing skills, be able to work independently, be well organized and highly motivated. Interns are expected to work between 30 and 40 hours a week. There is some flexibility in the work hours if you are taking classes while in D.C. The intern positions are unpaid. The Treasury does provide a subway subsidy to help defray commuting expenses.
If you are interested in applying, submit your resume (with your GPA included), a copy of your transcript (unofficial will suffice), two writing samples and three references (names and contact information) to Christine.Devlin@treasury.gov. Applications are due July 7, 2017. U.S. citizenship required. For further information, please contact Christine Devlin, Office of Economic Policy, U.S. Treasury Department, 202-622-2020.
