Each semester, the American Conservative Union (ACU) selects talented college students and recent graduates for its paid internship program. The ACU Internship Program provides a unique professional development experience designed to give participants first-hand knowledge of the state of the American conservative movement and our efforts to grow and strengthen it. Interns are tasked with a number of responsibilities, from assisting in grassroots advocacy to helping plan and present our annual CPAC event, the nation’s largest annual gathering of conservatives.
Interns are also given opportunities to learn more about Washington DC through informative and fun events. Interns will get the opportunity to attend a congressional hearing, tour the Capitol, and interact with conservative leaders from across the country.
Depending on the department, you will be directly involved in the major projects of the ACU, like CPAC, state and Congressional ratings, and our social media presence. You will gain hands-on experience as part of a supportive and collaborative team, all sharing the goal of spreading and energizing the conservative movement in America.
To apply, please send a cover letter, resume, and short writing sample to firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications are rolling, but the deadline for Summer 2015 is April 3. Include all of your contact information. If possible, indicate an approximate schedule if you are in school and have time constraints.
