There is a narrow, 40-hour window to apply for a paid summer internship sponsored by the Association of the U.S. Army with the Aspen Institute in Washington, D.C.

The job posting opens at 8 a.m. Eastern on Friday, May 5, and closes at 11:59 p.m. Eastern on Saturday, May 6.

The 12-week internship, running from May to August, is open to undergraduate and graduate students studying in fields related to policy, national security, homeland security, social sciences, history and government. The hourly salary will be about $11.50, and will include paid travel to an Aspen Institute forum in Aspen, Colo., in July.

The Aspen Institute is an international nonpartisan, nonprofit group founded in 1950 focused on contemporary global issues. Their forums bring together current and former senior U.S. and foreign officials, leading thinkers, and print and broadcast journalists to address topical issues.

The intern will be involved in planning the forum, research, communication and providing significant administrative support with event logistics and general needs of the team as necessary. Special projects will be assigned depending on the needs of the Aspen Institute and the skills of the candidate.

Brief meetings at AUSA will be held at the beginning and end of the internship.

Applicants must submit a cover letter, resume, and list of references for the position in PDF format. Military experience is strongly preferred.
