CWA Intern Program


CWA’s Ronald Reagan Memorial Internship Program is designed to give the rising generation experience in a public policy organization fighting for the preservation of Biblical values.

Interns will develop “real work” experience through professional hands-on projects that utilize your skills and interests. We hope to equip those just starting out in life with a rich, real-life work experience alongside Christian experts who have made careers putting their faith into public policy work.

Interns are expected to abide by the corporate policies and standards of Concerned Women for America, including dress, business hours, and conduct.

Acceptance to the Program

We accept interns from any field of study to work in any of these five areas: Media & Communications, Legislation & Public Policy, Legal Studies, Field Department (CWA grassroots), and Development & Donor Relations. Department placement is on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Acceptance to the Ronald Reagan Memorial Internship Program is contingent upon satisfactory completion of our application, a schedule compatible with CWA office hours and needs, qualification within the program parameters, and final selection by our committee. We accept interns for the summer, fall, and spring semesters.

The internship is a part-time paid position.

Academic Credit

The Ronald Reagan Memorial Internship Program is not an independently accredited program, but students may receive credit from their home institution depending upon their school’s policies. CWA is happy to work with your registrar’s office to provide information about our program.

Living Expenses/Housing/Transportation

Interns are responsible for their own living expenses.

CWA can recommend several resources in and around the city. We are also available to assist interns in finding affordable housing once they are accepted into the program. However, CWA does not provide housing. It is wise to look into your options early in order to be prepared for living costs and housing application deadlines. We recommend exploring your options at the time of application or soon thereafter. Click here for a comprehensive list of housing resources.

Interns are responsible for their own transportation to and from CWA’s national office each day. CWA’s headquarters is located in Alexandria, Virginia, just outside of Washington, D.C., and is within walking distance of the Braddock Road Metro stop. We also have a few free parking spots at our headquarters that will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. Carpooling with other CWA interns is also an option.
