The Social Security Advisory Board (SSAB) offers internships throughout the year to promising undergraduate college students and recent graduates. The SSAB reviews internship applications on a rolling basis for the spring, fall and summer semesters.
About the Internship
The SSAB seeks individuals with a specific interest in Social Security, health issues and public policy. Interns routinely assist senior staff with research projects, writing memorandum, performing various administrative tasks, and other substantive assignments. Interns have the opportunity to attend hearings on Capitol Hill and are encouraged to attend other informative events.
- Good academic standing at an accredited college/university
- Demonstrated communication and interpersonal skills
- Self-motivated with ability to work independently
The Board pays a stipend to interns. The Board does not pay for relocation, housing, food, or related expenses. Internships may be completed for college credit, provided the intern furnishes the required paperwork.
