NOTE: The Dialogue’s Internship Program for Summer 2021 will be remote. Applicants do not have to be based in DC. Circumstances permitting, interns may have the opportunity to participate in a combined in-person/remote internship at the Dialogue’s DC office. This may be an option later in the semester. However, interns can still choose to continue their internship remotely if they prefer or if they are not based in DC.
Although the Dialogue does review each application, the volume of applications we receive makes it impossible for us to communicate directly with all applicants. We will notify you if you are selected for a first-round interview.
For questions, please e-mail email@example.com.
