Congressional Budget Office is currently accepting applications from graduate students for the 2017 Summer Internship Program. CBO summer internships provide excellent opportunities to experience and observe the budget process and policymaking at the federal level. The internships are located in Washington, D.C. They normally begin after Memorial Day and last 10 weeks. Interns contribute to CBO's work in areas such as budget and tax policy, health care, national defense, the environment, education, retirement assistance, other income assistance, regulation, and public investment. In addition, interns participate in an educational program that includes briefings on CBO's role in the budget process. Interns may also participate in seminars such as the Congressional Summer Intern Lecture Series, which has featured former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, former Secretary of State Colin Powell, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and journalist Cokie Roberts. Please see CBO's page on internships for additional information.
