Naval War College Internship

All academic internships at the Naval War Academy are volunteer experiences. Regretfully, no funding is available. Interns should have availability in their schedules to complete internships which consist of at least 100 hours of volunteer time; this means at least one full day or two half days per week. Transportation is not provided.


Eligibility: US Citizens; IR, DS or Public Policy concentrators. Must be available at least one full day or two half days per week.

Application Periods:  September 1 – November 25 (for spring internship), February 1 – April 20 (for fall internship)

To apply: UFunds
