CBO has a fantastic internship program -- I regularly hear from former interns about what a wonderful experience they had as part of the program. In addition to our summer intern program, we also recently created a Health Policy Internship, which may be available on a summer, semester, or year-long basis depending on work needs and students' availability.
Here's a photo of this year's CBO interns:
The summer internships normally last about ten weeks and include compensation based on academic level and work experience.
Interns contribute to CBO's work in program areas such as budget and tax policy, health care, national defense, the environment, education, retirement and other income assistance, regulation, and public investment. They participate in an educational program that includes briefings on the agency's role in the budget process, and may also participate in seminars offered by other Congressional support agencies and in the Congressional Summer Intern Lecture Series. (Our slots are unfortunately already filled for this summer!)
