The Foundation for Defense of Democracies (FDD) is a nonpartisan policy institute dedicated exclusively to promoting pluralism, defending democratic values, and fighting the ideologies that threaten democracy. The organization was founded shortly after 9/11 by a group of visionary philanthropists and policymakers to engage in the worldwide war of ideas and to support the defense of democratic societies under assault by terrorism and militant Islamism. FDD combines policy research, investigative journalism, strategic communications, and democracy and counterterrorism education.
About FDD's Internship Program
Based in downtown Washington, D.C., the Foundation for Defense of Democracies has a number of spring internship opportunities available. All FDD interns will have the opportunity to participate in a twice-monthly speaker series, which brings high-level DC officials and senior staff members to engage with interns in an intimate setting. FDD interns will be encouraged to build on their academic skills by working closely with senior staff. FDD is also happy to assist students who wish to earn academic credit for this internship. All internships are unpaid.
Applications will be considered on a rolling basis. It is recommended that interested candidates submit applications early.
The Latin America Program is seeking a full-time or part-time intern for the spring. The intern will work closely with our Latin America team, including senior fellow Dr. Emanuele Ottolenghi, to assist with research on threats posed by state and non-state actors in Latin America and the Caribbean Basin. Projects include analysis of illicit financing networks and threats to U.S. national security interests. Interns must have previous research experience and be able to conduct research in Spanish. Portuguese is a plus, but not required. If there is a particular Latin American-related issue of interest, please indicate that in your cover letter.
