EngenderHealth Internship Program

Overview

The EngenderHealth internship program provides an opportunity for undergraduate students, graduate students, and recent graduates from diverse backgrounds to gain valuable experience and to meaningfully contribute to our work.

The objective of the program is to foster professional growth aligned with the student’s academic and career aspirations. EngenderHealth interns work on specific projects with a range of our programs and teams. Interships may be subject-, country/region-, or department-focused. Interns will also have the opportunity to attend internal and external meetings and participate in intern learning and engagement sessions with speakers from EngenderHealth and other global health organizations.

Types of Internships

EngenderHealth offers spring, summer, and fall internships.

Internships are usually 10 weeks and located in Washington, DC. Opportunities that allow for work outside of Washington, DC will be specified in the position description. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all US-based internships are currently remote (at least through summer 2021).

EngenderHealth believes that interns should be compensated in an equitable manner, and thus we prioritize offering paid internships. In special circumstances, we will consider unpaid internships. Internships can be for academic credit or not, depending on the intern’s school requirements and options.

Application Process

  • All applications must be submitted online through our career portal by the application deadline listed in the position description.
  • Upload your cover letter, resume, and two letters of recommendation.
  • If writing samples are required for a particular internship, the posting will include the request to upload them with your resume and cover letter as part of your application.

Hear from our previous interns!

Ana ShimeallAna ShimeallFall 2020 Digital Communications Intern: “Interning at EngenderHealth proved to be a formative experience, solidifying my desire to pursue a career in global health during my gap year. The work I produced as a member of the Communications Team was valued, and I was surrounded by inspiring mentors who took the time to offer meaningful advice and feedback. I especially enjoyed the intern learning and engagement sessions, which enabled me to expand my global health network both within and outside of EngenderHealth. After my internship, I was fortunate to be offered a full-time, six-month position as the Communications Coordinator.”
