FIRE is excited to announce that we have extended the application deadline for our 2017 Summer Internship through March 20!

Are you an intelligent, energetic undergraduate (a rising sophomore, junior, or senior) interested in defending civil liberties on America’s college campuses? Do you have excellent research, writing, and communication skills and a passion for the freedom of speech and due process of law?  If so, FIRE wants to hear from you.

Our internship program invites students from across the country to spend the summer working directly with FIRE’s staff defending civil liberties on America’s college campuses.

Interns will work closely with our Campus Outreach, Defense, Policy Reform, Development, Litigation, and Media teams, and will gain key insights into the mission, work, and administration of the premier campus civil liberties defense organization in the nation.  

In addition to attending weekly educational seminars with experts in the field to discuss the moral, philosophical, and legal foundations of civil liberties, interns will write about FIRE cases and issues for our website, assist with planning and running the annual student summer conference, and develop strategies for defending free speech when they return to campus.

The eight-week program runs from Monday, June 5, through Friday, July 28, and interns receive a $2,800 stipend. The internship program is based in our office in historic Philadelphia, just steps from Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell.
