Internship Opportunities

Interfaith Alliance, a national 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to protecting religious freedom for all Americans, seeks a second- or third-year law student or recent graduate to assist our federal policy team in Washington, D.C. This is a part-time position for the Spring 2020 semester.

Too often, the national dialogue around religious freedom favors the beliefs of some over the rights of all. Interfaith Alliance was founded in 1994 to push back on this false narrative by amplifying the voices of diverse people of faith and of no faith to protect freedom of belief, challenge extremism and hate, and prevent the misuse of religion to discriminate.

The policy intern will monitor and analyze legislation, conduct legal research, and contribute to policy materials and regulatory comments relevant to our federal policy agenda. As an equal opportunity employer, applicants need not profess a faith but must be willing to work on behalf of the issues we support, including combating religious discrimination, LGBTQ+ equality, separation of religion and government, and other First Amendment issues.

Eligibility and Requirements: Second- and third-year law students and recent graduates are eligible to apply. Applicants should have strong research, writing, and analytical skills, as well as an interest in legislative advocacy and First Amendment jurisprudence.

Compensation: $15/hour for 10-15 hours per week.

How to apply: Please submit a cover letter, resume, and a relevant writing sample to [email protected]. No faxes or telephone calls please.

Deadline: December 10, 2019.

Undergraduate Intern Program – Ongoing

Throughout the year, undergraduate students from around the country intern at Interfaith Alliance. Interning at  Interfaith Alliance provides the unique opportunity to explore the various faith traditions represented in our diverse nation and to see first-hand religious liberty at work from a First Amendment perspective.  Interns also receive a behind-the-scenes understanding of non-profit work by contributing to a variety of program areas that may include public policy, field and outreach, and development/membership.

Full and part-time fall and spring semester and summer internships are available and open to all undergraduate students. Application to the Intern Program is competitive, while most applicants demonstrate an on-going interest in pursing collegiate studies in issues concerning religion and public policy, we also encourage those studying non-profit management and marketing.

Eligibility and Requirements: Applicants must possess strong interpersonal, writing, and computer skills; the ability to manage multiple tasks and take initiative; and a significant degree of organization.

Compensation: Monthly stipend.
