Current Internship Openings:
The Center for Global Development (CGD), an independent, non-partisan, non-profit policy research organization in Washington, DC is now accepting applicants for its inaugural CGD Summer Delegates program.
The CGD Summer Delegates program is CGD’s newest initiative aimed at establishing the next wave of young leaders in economic equality and global development. Students will participate in a structured, paid, part-time internship program that will expose them to our work in various issue areas; provide an opportunity for professional development; and invite them to consider a career in development. Through this 8-week program, CGD hopes to gain diverse perspectives and build a new network of young professionals who may become part of the development community. This opportunity will be in Washington, D.C.
