Eligibility Criteria

At this time, we are only able to accept applicants that are current, or prospective, students. You must be enrolled in, and attending, a high school or college/university as you intern for Policy for the People. In addition, students from any region of the world are welcome to apply. Please note that we expect applicants to understand that we operate our meetings and workflows primarily using the English language. We ask our Organizers and Interns here at Policy for the People to use the English language to communicate to the best of the Organizer's, or Intern's, abilities. Secondly, Policy for the People primarily operates under the U.S. Eastern Time Zone. However, we are currently working to accomodate for our international Interns from vastly different time zones. While we do not require applicants to have a substantial amount of previous extracurricular experience. Applicants, if accepted, must be available and willing to contribute at least four (4) hours a week engaging in asynchronous project development and/or our meetings and work sessions. Unfortunately, Interns that cannot commit at least four (4) hours a week will not be able to proceed with the internship program for more than two (2) weeks. Please note that, if accepted as an Intern, you may select with project you would like to work with as an Intern. Lastly, students do not need to have experience in public policy, political science, public affairs, international relations, and/or related subject matters, to apply. In other words, not all Interns have workflows heavily based in policy, and we have a place for every passion and profession within our internship program. This is in efforts to maintain a highly interdisciplinary learning experience for all Interns, no matter their interests or backgrounds.
