Applying for OMB Summer Internships

The deadline for the 1999 summer has past. Applications for the 2000 summer will be accepted starting in February 2000.

General: Opportunities are best for graduate students in public policy, public administration, business, information systems, computer science, economics, law, or a related field. The duration of the assignment varies depending on each student's schedule, but most internships begin in mid to late May and end in late August.

Paid Assignments: OMB usually hires a limited number of summer interns. Interns are paid under the General Schedule (GS). Salary is determined based on the qualifications of the student. Generally, students with a bachelor's degree qualify for a GS-5 (annual salary $22,208), and students with one year of graduate school qualify for a GS-7 (annual salary $27,508). Students may qualify for higher grades if they have appropriate experience in addition to the graduate education.

Application Process: Individuals who are currently enrolled as a degree-seeking student in an accredited college or university interested in applying for the summer intern program should send (1) resume, (2) writing sample, and (3) copy of graduate and/or undergraduate transcript (copy may be unofficial) to the following address:
