About the NAFEO Internship Program
For over a decade, the National Association for Equal Opportunity in Higher Education (NAFEO) has facilitated internship assignments in government and industry for students enrolled in historically and predominantly black colleges and universities. Additionally, for interns who are employed in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area, NAFEO provides an orientation session at the beginning of each program session, and brings all interns together at least twice during their assignment periods for seminars on a range of topics which enhance the internship experiences. If you are a student looking for opportunities to gain valuable work experience to supplement your coursework, or an employer seeking to diversify your talent pool, recruit and offer internship experiences to African American and other students, you have come to the right place.
Application RequirementsPreference will be given to students enrolled in undergraduate or graduate programs at historically or predominantly black colleges and universities. A grade point average of 3.0 or above on a 4.0 scale is required. (Please note that some internships require U.S. citizenship.)
Application requirements are as follows:
Selection ProcessIn conjunction with NAFEO member institutions, NAFEO staff reviews applications to ensure that applicants are eligible and that the applications are complete. NAFEO staff then refers applications to employing agencies based on the academic disciplines they are seeking. Employing agencies review the applications, conduct interviews if necessary, and make all final selections.
Selected students will be notified by NAFEO staff and provided with an official internship offer.
PLEASE NOTE: Due to the high volume of applications, we cannot verify that each student transcript is received.
