Follow this link for more information and application

Academic Internship Program Sponsored by The Fund for American Studies

Spring 2023: January 18 – April 28

Fall 2023: August 23 – November 18

Why Capital Semester on Public Policy + International Affairs?

If you are looking for a career in politics, public policy, foreign affairs, international development, diplomacy or national security, Washington, D.C. is the place for you.

This 16-week TFAS program track is ideal for students who are passionate about global and domestic issues and are looking to gain the professional experience needed to break into these competitive fields. Spending a full semester in the Nation’s Capital allows students to fully immerse themselves at their internships and feel like a real Washington insider by the end of the semester.

What Makes this Program Track Unique?
  • 14-week internship placement in the field of international affairs or public policy (embassy, NGO, policy group, federal agency, Congressional office)
  • Coursework in international economics and government designed to complement your real-world experience
  • Guest lectures featuring prominent policy and economics experts
  • Networking through career-focused panels and small group discussions led by professionals working for government agencies Congressional offices, public affairs firms, the World Bank and many more.

It’s much more than just coursework and an internship placement. The contacts you’ll make throughout the summer will be invaluable in finding that first job out of college.

Effective Altruism

UMich Effective Altruism is excited to announce our Intro Fellowship, a semester-long seminar program for students who want to make the world a better place. You’ll discuss problems like global poverty, factory farming, and risks from emerging technologies, as well as promising strategies for working on them. Along the way, you’ll consider ideas from the effective altruism movement and criticisms of these ideas, with the goal of developing your own informed opinions and beliefs about the best ways to help. Apply by Friday, September 16th!

Effective altruism is a global movement and research project about carefully using evidence and reasoning to assess how to benefit others as much as possible – more concretely, how to prioritize between different problems to identify the most pressing ones and find effective solutions for solving them. It is also about taking action to help, and our campus chapter focuses on empowering students to go have careers with a positive impact. We connect altruistically-minded students with internships, grants, and guidance for this purpose, and we also run regular discussions and social meetings.
