About Our Interns

Cited by Crain's NY Business in 2006 as one of the most highly sought-after internships for ambitious students, WPI fielded more than 400 applications in 2009-2010. We hosted 35 interns who contributed brilliantly to our research, communications, development, marketing, public relations, event management, and editorial and online portfolio. Research and advocacy interns worked directly with WPI fellows; editorial interns played a significant role in expanding our multimedia presence, and were instrumental in developing our new weekly podcast series. This year's interns have hailed from as far away as India, Australia, Pakistan, and France. In addition to interns from each of the Ivy League schools, WPI hosted students from the University of Chicago, Georgetown, Vasser, Oberlin, and Sciences Po Paris, as well as from top New York institutions like NYU, Bard, Fordham, and The New School. Recent interns have gone on to hold positions in business, policy, and media organizations including the Council on Foreign Relations, the Peace Corps, Time Magazine, ABC, the Hess Corporation, U.S. Congress, and UNDP.
