Please note that the PFLAG National Internship program is on hold indefinitely. We will update this page as more information becomes available.

Program Description

The PFLAG National Office has graduate and undergraduate full-time and part-time internships available each school semester, and summer, for college and university students or recent graduates. The program is largely based on the specific needs of the national office.

Interns will gain experience working in a national organization dedicated to ending discrimination against gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender people. A high degree of exposure to national issues and events will be gained in a fast paced setting. Interns may participate in department staff meetings where strategy is determined and plans are prepared. Interns are given a high amount of responsibility and work side-by-side with staff members working on important issues and projects.

Course credit for the internship will depend on the policies of the particular institution the student is attending. The status of a particular internship as credit or non-credit will be determined before any particular internship is offered. The PFLAG national staff will provide an evaluation of the intern's work in accord with the institution's standards and procedures.

Interns will not receive a stipend. Interns are responsible for their own lodging and living expenses, and any other costs. Since PFLAG is a nonprofit agency, we may qualify with certain schools to allow student work study obligations to be fulfilled by working at PFLAG. Prospective interns should contact their campus Financial Aid office for details. 

Who Can Apply?

Full-time or part-time University/College students and recent graduates based in the U.S. may apply.
