Since 2002, the AAPD Summer Internship Program has developed the next generation of leaders with disabilities and offered host employers access to a talented, diverse workforce. Each summer, AAPD places college students, graduate students, law students, and recent graduates with all types of disabilities in paid 10-week summer internships in Congressional offices, federal agencies, non-profit and for-profit organizations in the Washington, DC area. Each intern is matched with a mentor who will assist them with their career goals.
AAPD provides the interns with a stipend, transportation to and from Washington, DC, and fully-accessible housing.
This is a program run specifically for students with disabilities by the American Association of People with Disabilities (AAPD), a national cross-disability organization. Those selected for this program will be involved in various disability-focused activities and associated with AAPD and fellow interns with all types of disabilities throughout the program.
Internship Duration: This is a 10 weeks summer internship programme.
Note: Finalists will be contacted for formal telephone interviews. Interns will be selected for the program and notified in late February 2016.
