THERE ARE CURRENTLY NO VACANT PERMANENT / TERM POSITIONS AT THE PERRY CENTER
The Perry Center’s internship program is an opportunity for highly motivated undergraduate students, graduate students, and recent graduates to gain valuable experience working on defense and security issues affecting the Americas. Interns will work in a multicultural and multilingual environment, regularly interacting with civilian and military officials from the Americas and other regions of the world. Interns will also have the opportunity to sit in on various lectures, courses, and professional development sessions hosted by the Perry Center and the National Defense University.
The Perry Center offers two types of internships: research and communications/multimedia. Applicants may apply to both internships if interested.
The Perry Center is seeking research interns to support academic projects, publications, and courses related to security and defense in the Western Hemisphere. Research interns will work with Perry Center faculty members, supporting the Center’s mission to educate senior civilian and military officials, as well as inform US policy and DoD activities in the region.
The Director of Strategic Communication is seeking a communications/multimedia intern who is full of creative ideas and eager to contribute on a large scale. The intern will assist with tasks related to public relations, marketing, and interagency coordination. Applicants must have excellent writing skills, demonstrate creativity, and understand the importance of clear, consistent communication.
Interns may receive academic credit for their work at the Perry Center. Interns must make arrangements with their academic institution and provide the Perry Center with the necessary paperwork.
