Joseph S. Nye, Jr. National Security Internship and Mentoring Program

The Center for a New American Security (CNAS) established its flagship internship and mentoring program in honor of Dr. Joseph S. Nye, Jr., who has devoted his career to the preparation and mentoring of generations of Americans and global strategists. The Joseph S. Nye, Jr. National Security Internship seeks to follow Dr. Nye's leadership in this area by offering a rigorous internship program involving policy research, writing, exposure to national policy debates and decisionmakers, and professional development.

CNAS offers full-time (40 hrs/week) internships. Competition for the seven to ten spots is highly competitive. Interns work closely with CNAS staff and are given considerable responsibility. Participants are chosen based on merit in an open, competitive process.
