See https://amfam.wd1.myworkdayjobs.com/en-US/Careers/job/WI-Madison-Natl-HQ/Market-Research-Intern_R8202 for more information.  Am Fam often has internships available but they go quickly; check their website regularly for the best chance of finding an internship.  (Their internships are paid.)

Children’s Theater of Madison (Stipend; apply now)
CTM internships introduce potential arts professionals to a range of careers in theater through hands-on experience. The internships vary among different departments and depending on the time of year, but may be available in education, marketing, production, casting, events, and design.  Summer interns are paid a bi-weekly stipend (amount depends on department).  For academic year internships, academic credit is available (see Christina about this!). 


American Museum of Natural History (Paid; due March 11)
Looking for a unique and challenging summer experience? A paid summer internship with the Museum Education and Employment Program (MEEP) may be just right for you.

MEEP interns are responsible for developing and presenting themed tours to visiting camp groups, and engaging visitors at educational touch carts in the Museum halls. The program provides on-the-job training and exposure to careers in science, museum education, and related fields. Participants work closely with Museum scientists and educators exploring scientific content and learning valuable skills for working with and teaching learners of all ages. MEEP is a great opportunity for young adults to have an impact on the experiences of thousands of Museum visitors. Applicants MUST be a permanent resident of New York City and new graduates ARE eligible to apply. 


European Parliament Office, Washington, DC (Paid; due March 15)
Complement your studies with a genuinely international internship! The European Parliament Liaison Office with the US Congress invites US citizens to apply for a full-time, paid internship. What better place to monitor transnational politics in action, to see global players in international affairs addressing global challenges across a range of policy areas, and to witness the interplay between decision-makers in the US and lawmakers from the European Union?

The internship is held for three months in Washington DC, with the option of a two-month extension in Brussels. The office offers three internship intakes each year; the deadline for the May 2018 intake is March 15. 

• spring: January 16-April 15, with an option to extend in Brussels April 16-June 15
• summer: May 1-July 31, with an option to extend in Brussels October 1-November 30
• fall: September 16-December 15, with an option to extend in Brussels January 16-March 15

University graduates who are US citizens or have the right to work in the US and who meet the following criteria are eligible: candidates need to have completed studies at least at undergraduate level, and must be able to provide an undergraduate or postgraduate diploma/official transcript at least one month before the beginning of the internship. Candidates must be available for a full-time internship. We regret it is not possible to accommodate part-time arrangements.
