AAPD’s 2018 Summer Internship Program Looking For Students with Disabilities

For fifteen years the American Association of People with Disabilities (AAPD) has worked to connect and empower young workers with disabilities in their annual Summer Internship Program. The initiative places college and graduate students with all types of disabilities in Congressional offices, federal agencies, and NGOs in Washington, D.C. Each candidate receives a stipend as well as fully-accessible housing, and is matched with a mentor to help develop their career goals. 
The AAPD is currently looking for interns for its upcoming 2018 program, to which any undergraduate student, graduate student, or even recent graduate with a disability is welcome to apply. Past internship placements include the American Bar Association, U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Institute for Educational Leadership, U.S. Department of Labor, and many offices of senators and representatives. 
The deadline for submissions is 5:00 PM ET on Monday, November 6, 2017. Finalists will be contacted by February 2017. For more information, please contact AAPD at internships@aapd.com or at (202) 521-4316.
