Paid Summer Internships List


For many students trying to find a summer internship is stressful. Not do they only have to worry about where they'll be interning but also how they will survive while working for free. Thankfully, Pay Our Interns has compiled a list of places that are still looking for interns for the summer and the best part is they pay! From the World Economic Forum to the U.S. Fish Wildlife Service, there's something here for everyone. Whether you want to intern in DC, Seattle or even London, we've got you covered.


Our Campaign


Pay Our Interns is bipartisan, non-profit organization that advocates for an increase in the amount of paid internships within our government, for-profit, and nonprofit sector. POI serves as a research platform, advocacy guide, and internship database for students across the country. Paid internships should be available to all students in every sector, whether private or public. A student’s socioeconomic status should not be a barrier to getting real-world work experience.

Our Solution


It is imperative that we fund more paid internships, not only because it’s the right thing to do, but because it makes sense from a financial standpoint. According to a survey done by the National Association of Colleges and Employers, students with paid internships receive higher salaries than students with unpaid internships. With their higher salaries, those students can then contribute more to society, returning the initial investment made in their experiential education. If we want to have a competitive workforce in the coming decades, we need to invest in more paid internships for millennials.
