The Milton and Cynthia Friedman Internships
Application Deadline: 21 JanuaryThe Milton and Cynthia Friedman Internships in Washington, D.C., were created in 2000 through a generous gift from Cynthia Friedman, currently a trustee of the university, in memory of her husband, an alumnus of Carnegie Mellon. The grants encourage and support the participation of undergraduate and graduate students in policy-related internships located in the nation’s capital. They are designed to foster significant work experiences that complement students’ academic work and assist them as they make career and graduate education decisions.
Friedman interns work on substantive projects, develop professional skills and benefit from the personal attention of a supervisor at their organization. In addition to their professional duties, Friedman interns attend exciting events, both educational and social, presented by influential and effective politicians, academics and leaders from the nonprofit sector.
There are two Friedman programs in Washington:

Graduating seniors are not eligible.
Washington SemesterCarnegie Mellon undergraduates from any course of study who would welcome first-hand policy experience are invited to apply to the university's Washington Semester Program (WSP).
