for OMB Summer Internships
Note: Applications for
OMB's 2008 summer internship program are no longer being accepted.
GENERAL: The OMB summer internship program is for graduate-level
students (students currently seeking a Masters degree) in public policy,
public administration, business, information systems, computer science,
economics, or a related field. The duration of the assignment varies
depending on each student's schedule, but most internships begin in mid
to late May and end in late August. U.S. Citizenship is required. We
do not accept applications from undergraduate students.
ASSIGNMENTS: OMB will be offering paid summer internships during
the summer of 2007. First-year graduate students selected for the internship
program will be paid at the GS-7 level.
APPLICATION PROCESS: Individuals who are currently enrolled as a
Masters or higher degree-seeking student in an accredited college or university
interested in applying for the summer internship program should e-mail
(1) résumé, (2) writing sample of 1-3 pages (i.e., school
paper, memo, or anything that favorably demonstrates your writing skills),
and (3) copy of graduate and undergraduate transcript (copy may be unofficial)
Applications will be accepted January 1 through March 28, 2008.
Interested graduate-level students must be willing and able to travel to
Washington, DC, if selected for interviews (at your own expense).
Writing samples, transcripts, and general inquiries may be
sent via FAX at 202-395-0684. Do not send materials via regular mail, as mail from outside sources may not be received in a timely fashion.
RECRUITING: OMB visits some graduate schools each year. Check with
the placement director of your school for details or email OMB_Recruitment@omb.eop.gov to find out if we are visiting your school.
