Internships: Policy

Internships:  Policy

The organizations below are listed by "theme" to help you organize your search, not to define the organizations. Review the "About Us," "Mission," or "What We Do" pages within each organization's site to learn about the full range of its interests and activities. 

In addition, Many ENSP students benefit from participating in the UMD Federal and Global Fellows Programs, which combines a fall seminar course and a spring internship opportunity in areas ranging from public health, science diplomacy, and energy and environmental policy.
