Legislative Interns

The Animal Welfare Institute (AWI) seeks two legislative interns every fall, spring, and summer. This is a great opportunity for law students, political science students, or anyone with a passion for making a difference in the lives of animals. Interns will assist our government and legal affairs staff in maintaining updated Hill contact lists, delivering documents to and attending meetings with congressional offices, and assisting staff in research, as well as miscellaneous tasks of an administrative nature. No specific academic major is required; however, preferred candidates will have a strong work ethic and be willing to take on any project. Interns may work full-time or part-time and can arrange to receive course credit. Please submit a résumé and cover letter, stating why you wish to become an advocate for animals to Nancy Blaney at nancy@awionline.org. All internships will be remote until further notice. Internships are generally unpaid. However, students accepted for a summer position are encouraged to apply for AWI’s Paid Summer Internship Program.
