Graduate & Undergraduate Policy and Field Internships: Washington DC
Americans for Safe Access is happy to announce the following internship opportunity for 2015 – 2016. We are offering a policy and field outreach internship that will allow the student to learn about outreach to both policy-makers and field organizations for the nation’s largest organization promoting safe and legal access to cannabis for therapeutic use and research. The intern will have a learning experience and will work closely with various departments.
Intern responsibilities will vary but in general include administrative support to staff; researching and reviewing medical cannabis policy topics; drafting of memos, advocacy materials and letters to federal policy makers; and, attending hearings, briefings and various meetings where appropriate.
Successful candidates will demonstrate a willingness to undertake unfamiliar initiatives with enthusiasm and creativity, and possess an informed knowledge about the issues facing medical cannabis patients and their providers. Applicants should possess a sense of humor, excellent research, communication and organizational skills, have the ability to manage multiple tasks simultaneously while working independently or as a team, and have some basic understanding of the federal legislative process. Some prior campaign experience preferred but not necessary.
The internship is an unpaid experience, but ASA staff will work to ensure academic credit is received, if applicable. Interns are expected to work in our Washington, DC office between 8-15 hours per week. The minimum duration of an internship is 8 weeks.
To apply: Please e-mail a cover letter, resume, and short writing sample (no more than 5 pages) to ASA at [email protected].
NO PHONE CALLS, PLEASE.
All applicants will be notified of our receipt of application; only selected applicants will be contacted for phone or in-person interviews.
