Summer Intern Program

Overview & Program Structure

The Summer Intern Program provides bright undergraduate and graduate students with the opportunity to gain valuable work experience at the Federal Reserve Bank. Through project-oriented assignments and professional development activities, interns receive a solid overview of the business of the Bank while contributing to their designated Fed departments.

Most interns join from late May to mid June when summer break begins and normally work 40 hours per week. Typically, internships last for 10 consecutive weeks in the summer. Some interns may continue to work part-time if the department prefers to retain them during the year.

Profile of Interns

Applicants must have a strong academic record and a demonstrated interest in economics, business, finance, math, marketing, information technology or a field of study relevant to the business of the Bank. Excellent analytical and interpersonal skills are essential.

Past interns emphasize that the program has helped them to hone their skills, learn about the Fed, and build lasting relationships with peers and professionals.
