Obama Foundation Fall Internship Program 2018 (Stipend Available)

Deadline: May 14, 2018

The Obama Foundation is looking to hire a diverse cohort of passionate, mission-oriented, and qualified interns to serve in their Chicago and D.C. offices. The Foundation believes that interns will become some of the world’s most valuable leaders in varying capacities. Their hope is that this internship can provide interns with exposure to diverse models of leadership and practical work experience, especially for those who might not otherwise get them.

The Fall 2018 internship will run for 14 weeks beginning on September 4, 2018 and ending on December 7, 2018. For students on the quarter system, the internship will run from September 17, 2018 to December 21, 2018. Interns will be required to work 40 hours a week in either the Foundation’s Chicago or Washington, D.C. office.
