The U.S. Army War College in Carlisle, PA, provides interns with “real” jobs, not typical intern duties. The goal of the internship opportunity is to expose the interns to the professional working environment of the Department of Defense in collaboration with their interagency partners, such as the Departments of State and Justice, as well as USAID. The intern will be exposed to interagency and international collaboration, as they assist in developing whole of government solutions. We offer unparalleled flexibility in creating real world, dynamic research projects that assist not only the USAWC’s mission, but further the knowledge and understanding of U.S. government operational dynamics and synergies for the student.
This internship opportunity will also focus on research techniques and good research methodology, such as validating and finding original source, reducing personal bias, concision in writing, as well as writing for your audience. Interns are exposed to elements of the USAWC curriculum which may enhance their portfolio, while understanding how DoD and our interagency partners view problems and build strategies from a whole of government approach. Some internship opportunities may also be involved in developing War Games and editing the USAWC Social Media presence.
Interns work with international officers and civilians, where they provide research assistance to the faculty.
