Application Process

We divide our internships into five functions: Programs and Initiatives, Communications, Logistics, Technology, and the Clinton Presidential Center. Within each function there are specific areas of interest and within each area of interest there are specific departments (see our available internships). The application requires that you (1) choose your area of interest and (2) prioritize your departments of choice. Please review the options and be prepared with your selections before beginning the application process. 

Please complete all components of your application. You cannot resume a partially completed application form, so make sure you have the following components ready in plain text format before you continue:

  • A copy of your current resume

  • Identify your top three to five areas of interest along with the specific departments that you would like to be assigned to (see Internships Available)

  • Short Essay: 250-500 words stating your interest in the work of the Clinton Foundation, and how the internship relates to your objectives, expectations, and future goals. Please include your experiences and skills that make you a strong candidate for the internship position. Additionally, your essay should include why you have chosen the specific areas of interest and departments.

  • Short Biography: approximately 100-200 words

  • Writing sample: a short, clear and concise example that demonstrates your writing ability

  • If you are applying for a stipend, please prepare a statement (500 words) explaining your reasons for receiving a need-based stipend.

  • Two letters of recommendation. If you are a current student or recent graduate, we prefer that one letter is from a professor. Please fax or scan your letters of recommendation to, or mail them directly to the location where you are applying for the internship; either the Foundation’s New York office or Little Rock office.
