CBCF Communications Internship Program


Sponsored by State Farm, the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation's Communications Internship is a semester-long opportunity for undergraduate students in their junior or senior year or recent graduates with an interest in social media and digital communications to apply principles and theory learned in the classroom on Capitol Hill.

Successful candidates will work five days a week in assigned offices in the House of Representatives, the Senate, committees, and agencies. While on Capitol Hill, interns work with the press secretary or communications director researching legislation, preparing press releases, writing op-editorials, writing arguments for a position, organizing and helping to prepare for briefings and forums, and performing various office tasks. Interns will have the opportunity to attend internal meetings, local think tank events, professional development workshops, and network with interns from other institutions.

It is the mission of the CBCF Leadership Institute to diversify Capitol Hill by placing a CBCF intern in every Congressional office. During the spring and fall semesters, interns will be placed in Congressional offices on both sides of the aisle. Applicants should be aware that there is very high likelihood that they will not be placed in CBC member offices. Applicants can learn more about our mission here: Emerge 535

This program is offered during the fall (August through December) and spring (January through April) semesters. CBCF interns receive a bi-weekly stipend, in addition to housing and professional development activities.
