Basic eligibility requires enrollment as an undergraduate or graduate student at two and four-year accredited educational institutions, as well as U.S. citizenship.
The Department of Commerce (DOC) has opportunities for both summer and academic year paid internships. Students interested in being considered for opportunities under the Department of Commerce Postsecondary Internship Program should visit our website to find out more about eligibility criteria, program benefits and the application form. Please note that all programs are open to any students who meet program eligibility criteria.
Interns participate in on-site work experiences with DOC bureaus and offices in order to integrate academic theory and workplace requirements, gain relevant skills and knowledge, explore Federal career options, develop professional networks, and gain a greater awareness of the role of Federal agencies.
