Hosting a Director's Intern

The IOP partners with high-profile organizations and elected officials around the world to provide substantive, career-oriented summer internships for undergraduates students interested in politics, government, and public service. These opportunities are fully-funded by the IOP, and interns are responsible for completing 8-10 weeks of full-time work. 

The IOP welcomes inquries from organizations interested in learning more about the program; please email IOP_ICS@hks.harvard.edu.

“This was my first experience of a Harvard Intern and my colleagues here at Special Olympics GB kept promising me how great it would be - but I have to say that I really wasn’t expecting the quality of Intern that I found in Michi. She is extremely bright, committed and reflective and I immediately felt a huge confidence in her abilities and comfortable relying on her from the very start.” - Director's Intern host, Special Olympics Great Britain
