The American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) offers paid full-time and part-time internships throughout the year. All opportunities are located at the AAAS headquarters located in downtown Washington, DC, and last up to 12 weeks. AAAS internships are open to undergraduate and graduate students and recent college graduates. As an Intern  you can expect to:

  1. Collaborate with employees and other interns professionally and socially,

  2. Apply knowledge attained through your education to real work situations, 

  3. Learn about AAAS as a whole and understand the organization outside of your assigned department, and

  4. Benefit from clear expectations and instructions from experienced employees in similar fields.

Shaping a career in science need not be a solitary challenge. Helping scientists and engineers forge successful career paths is one way that AAAS "advances science and serves society."
