Congressional Budget Office (CBO), CBO 2014 Internships, Application Deadline, BTT Gateway Job ID 6266

Fri, February 28, 2014

CBO summer internships provide excellent opportunities to experience and observe the budget process and policymaking at the federal level. The internships, which have ranged in number from 10 to 28, are located in Washington, D.C. They normally last 10 weeks and include compensation based on academic level and work experience. 

CBO provides the Congress with the objective, timely, and nonpartisan analyses needed for economic and budgetary decisions. Interns contribute to CBO's work in program areas such as budget and tax policy, health care, national defense, the environment, education, retirement and other income assistance, regulation, and public investment. 

In addition to learning on the job, CBO interns participate in an educational program that includes briefings specific to CBO's role in the budget process. CBO interns may also participate in seminars offered by other Congressional support agencies and in the Congressional Summer Intern Lecture Series, which has featured speakers such as former Secretary of State Colin Powell, journalist Cokie Roberts, former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich, and Ralph Nader. 

Ideal candidates for CBO internships are pursuing graduate academic programs in economics, public policy, health policy, financial management, mathematics, statistics, or engineering. Very strong undergraduate candidates currently in their junior or senior year may be considered on the basis of the applicability of their education and experience to specific CBO assignments.
