The Office of Career Planning subscribes to the Public Policy Handbook, an extensive listing of summer internships and post-graduate fellowship programs in public policy, legislative affairs, and issue advocacy. Access the Public Policy Handbook through the CareerConnect Resource Library.

Rolling Deadlines:  At the top of Fellowship and Internships “Applications by Deadline” Table is a list of programs that hire on a “Rolling Basis.” This means the employer accepts and reviews applications as received, and may make hiring decisions on this timeframe. If you have an interest in such a program (and would seriously consider an offer, if extended), review the “Rolling Deadlines” list on a regular basis.
