Type of Funding
The Clinton Foundation invites college students and graduates from around the world to apply for its U.S.-based internships, which are divided into 5 functions: Programs and Initiatives, Communications, Logistics, Technology, and the Clinton Presidential Center. Within each function there are specific areas of interest and within each area of interest there are specific departments.
Internship periods are divided into: Fall (early September to mid December), Spring (late January to late May), and Summer (early June to late August). Interns have to work 24 to 40 hours per week during the fall and spring semesters and 30 to 40 hours per week during the summer semester. The internships are tenable at the offices of the Clinton Foundation & Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) in New York, USA or at the Little Rock Office in Arkansas, USA.
The internship program has 3 primary components: hands-on work experience, educational and professional development, and mentorship. It also comprises a lecture series, social and community service events, and a final project to help guide participants beyond their Clinton Foundation experience. Internships are approximately 3 months in length, but can be up to 1 year.
Currently, the Clinton Foundation is accepting applications for the Fall 2018 Internship at Little Rock, Arkansas, which will take place from 5 September to 30 November 2018. There are positions available in 7 main areas:
- Clinton Museum Store

Interns with financial need are given stipends calculated based on a combination of family income, moving and housing costs, and history of employment. International students who apply and qualify for financial assistance will be reimbursed for some of their meals, transportation and lodging.
Interns who do not have to move to New York City for the internship and qualify for financial assistance will receive a onetime payment of US$1,000. An intern who moves to New York City for the internship and qualifies for financial assistance will receive US$1500 to US$2000.
Applicants must be college students, graduate school students, or college graduates.
