Apply Now to Be a 2017 FIRE Summer Intern!

October 17, 2016

FIRE is excited to announce that we are now accepting applications for our 2017 Summer Internship!

Our internship program invites students from across the country to spend the summer working directly with FIRE’s staff defending civil liberties on America’s college campuses.

FIRE is looking for intelligent, energetic undergraduates (rising sophomores, juniors, and seniors) interested in FIRE’s mission and work. Candidates must have excellent research, writing, and communication skills. The ability to work under deadlines and a sense of humor are also important.

Interns will work closely with our Campus Outreach, Defense, Policy Reform, Development, Litigation, and Media teams and will gain key insights into the mission, work, and administration of the premier campus civil liberties defense organization in the nation.  

In addition to attending weekly educational seminars with experts in the field to discuss the moral, philosophical, and legal foundations of civil liberties, interns write about FIRE cases and issues for our website, assist with planning and running the annual student summer conference, and develop strategies for defending free speech when they return to campus.

The eight-week program runs from Monday, June 5, through Friday, July 28, and interns receive a $2,800 stipend. The internship program is based in our office in historic Philadelphia, just steps from Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell.
