EMILY's List

We ignite change by getting pro-choice
Democratic women elected to office.


Thinking about an EMILY’s List Internship?

Gain valuable political experience and help elect pro-choice Democratic women up and down the ticket! We offer internships spring, summer, and fall in all of our departments. Interns have the opportunity to do substantive work, while gaining in-depth experience in the political sector. In addition to daily work in their departments and attendance at staff events, interns participate in brown bag sessions, which gives them the opportunity to hear from varying levels of staff while learning about their professional history and gaining deeper knowledge about how all the departments at EMILY’s List work. Every intern leaves EMILY’s List ready for life on the campaign trail after attending a full-day intensive training that will equip them with skills for beginning a career in campaigns.

The Summer 2019 internship application window is now open! The priority application deadline is March 10. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis after the priority deadline has passed. If you are selected for an interview, you will be contacted directly. Thank you for your interest in EMILY’s List!

EMILY’s List pays a stipend of up to $300 per month, dependent on schedule, to offset travel and meal expenses associated with the internship. A minimum commitment of 10 weeks is required for all internships. All internships are located in Washington, DC.
