Washington DC Internships

I attended Wilson Center talks when I lived in DC. Could be a good place to get student internships.

One of our faculty members worked at PAI earlier in her career (they do advocacy work linking family planning decisions and climate change in the developing world)  and used to coordinate internships there. They are full now but usually reopen toward the end of the Spring. There are usually opportunities in the DC office and in the field.
