Passionate about human rights and fundamental freedoms in North America, Europe, and Eurasia? Put your regional and policy expertise to use at the Helsinki Commission.

A small professional staff supports the 21 members of the bipartisan, bicameral Commission; we also offer paid fellowships in the summer, fall, and winter terms.

The Helsinki Commission accepts unpaid intern applications on a rolling basis. To apply, please e-mail a cover letter and resume to csce[dot]internship[at]mail[dot]house[dot]gov. Please be sure to indicate the semester for which you are applying.

PLEASE NOTE: In light of the current COVID-19 pandemic, the Helsinki Commission has suspended the selection process for summer 2020 internships. If you submitted an application for the summer 2020 cohort and wish to be considered for an internship in the fall, please resubmit your application. Thank you for your understanding.
