Some HLS students find that internships evolve naturally from the ties they make through their research or out in the community. There are plenty of other ways to land an internship, too. Staff at the Walter Center for Career Achievement can help you explore the possibilities and coach you through the application and interview process.
At the Hamilton Lugar School, you may apply to receive academic credit for your internship (paid or unpaid). This credit may apply to your degree requirements.
You are not required to apply for credit although some employers may require that you enroll in a course. Students who need more course credits also may wish to inquire about earning this type of credit.
You earn the credit by applying to:
- SGIS X373, Internship in Global and International Studies (1-3 credits)
Deadlines to apply:
- Spring semester: Feb. 1
- Summer: June 1
- Fall semester: Oct. 1
Documentation required after completion of internship:
- Self-Evaluation: submit Site Evaluation including Journal and Reflection
- Internship Employer Evaluation Form

Rotational Non-Profit Management Internship
Through this internship, you will receive robust training in a diverse range of WRI operations duties, including project financial management, grant, and sub-agreement management, development and fundraising, finance and accounting, and human resources. Operations teams create the infrastructure that facilitates the success of WRI's mission and are foundational to WRI being able to achieve impact.
During the first three weeks, you will participate in a rotational training curriculum involving in-depth seminars, guided learning modules, and assignments that will provide in-depth insight into the topics and responsibilities encompassing non-profit management.
For the remaining duration of your internship, you will work directly with a WRI program or center, in alignment with your interests, to shadow experienced operations staff and support the completion of typical Project Coordinator assignments that will allow you to apply your knowledge of WRI’s systems and processes in real-life scenarios. During your direct placement with a team, you will work on programmatic deliverables, provide ongoing operations support and manage other special projects. Examples of potential projects include completing a Project Management for Development Professionals (PMD Pro) training & certification, compiling funder financial reports, designing a strategy to integrate project operations and communications, and forecasting your team’s quarterly budget.
