Intern at NASPAA!

NASPAA offers paid internships for graduate students in its Washington, DC office.  The number of positions and area of responsibility varies by semester, but each offers an exciting opportunity to work on projects and programs that will make an important and lasting contribution to public affairs education. NASPAA internships are especially well suited for students with an interest in higher education policy, nonprofit management, and public service.
