It’s also a great way to form lasting connections and memories.
In addition to typical intern duties you will have the chance to volunteer in community outreach projects and grassroots organizing, assist at DNC functions, take tours across the city and attend weekly lunches hosted by DNC staff. Each department offers you a unique learning experience—learn more about each department here.

THE SARAH ROSEN FUND
The DNC is proud to provide funds for our interns through the Sarah Rosen Fund. The fund provides a travel stipend to defray the costs of local travel on public transportation to and from the DNC headquarters. The DNC will also provide a one time $1,000 stipend for 3-5 interns chosen from all applicants by members of the Rosen family and DNC staff.
About the Sarah Rosen Fund: Sarah Rosen referred to herself as a “Professional Democrat.” She passionately believed in the Democratic Party. Sarah knew that our nation is at its strongest when Democrats communicate our values and ideals to the American people and live those values by helping those in need. She served as communications director for several members of Congress, and for the state of Arizona during John Kerry’s Presidential campaign in 2004 and before that, she was an intern.
Sarah understood the need to help those campaign volunteers who slept on supporters’ couches and worked for nothing. She wanted the Democratic Party to be strong, compassionate, and understanding of people’s needs.
On September 30, 2005 Sarah was tragically killed in an auto accident. To honor her memory and to carry out her goals, SarahÂ’s family raised money to establish the Sarah Rosen Fund to help create the next generation of Democratic leaders. The purpose of the fund is to help defray some of the costs that Interns experience when they come to Washington, DC for a DNC internship.
