An internship can be a tremendously formative experience for students as they prepare for their career. The Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission internship program is designed for exemplary college and seminary students interested in addressing today’s cultural issues from a biblical perspective. ERLC internships provide the unique opportunity for interns to become directly involved in issues that impact millions of people. We offer volunteer internships, providing students hands-on experience in the fields of communications, public policy, and administration.
Internships are available for qualified students throughout the year in both our Nashville and Washington offices. The ERLC seeks to design each experience around the individual’s gifts and interests. Our staff is committed to the success of each intern and will mentor him or her during the internship program. To get a more in-depth look at our internship program, check out this article.
If you are a student interested in current social, moral, and public policy issues, please give serious, prayerful consideration to the opportunity of an ERLC internship.
Applicants should provide the following:
- Brief personal testimony (page or less about spiritual journey and passions)
- Paragraph about goals and expectations of an internship
- Time frame of availability (spring, summer, or fall)
- Samples of writing abilities
Comments from former interns
This internship completely exceeded all expectations that I had. Joshua A.
I very much appreciate the opportunity to work along side the staff at ERLC. My time there was used to help focus my vision for ministry. Rob C.
My internship with ERLC was both a professional and spiritual place of growth for me in the ministry of communications. To this day, the staff probably doesn’t realize the impact they made in my life. They took time to invest in me as a college student called to ministry, encouraged me to press ahead in pursuing a seminary degree to better equip myself for ministry, and introduced me to a network of people in my field that have helped me grow and move forward in my career even today. Kaylan C.
Being in Washington and understanding how it works—going to meetings, working with other pro-family groups, and interacting with Congress—really showed me the importance of Christians actively engaging in the public square. Andy L.
I am grateful for my internship with you all. I learned about various issues that impact the world, and it opened my eyes to the great need of helping those in need. Josh D.
