The Program has a long-standing commitment to providing substantive internship opportunities for undergraduates, graduate students, and post-docs from all fields of science and engineering, as well as law students. Interns work closely with AAAS staff across a range of projects, helping to prepare proposals, organize meetings, contribute to publications, manage computer databases, draft web content, and participate in on-going research. They also have the opportunity to attend relevant conferences and meetings in the Washington, D.C. area, and write for the Program's newsletters.
