Website EMILY's List

EMILY’s List the Nation’s Largest Resource for Women in Politics



Gain valuable political experience and help elect Democratic pro-choice women up and down the ticket! We offer internships during the spring, summer, and fall semesters in all of our departments. Interns have the opportunity to do substantive work, while gaining in-depth experience in the political sector. In addition to daily work in their departments and attendance at staff events, interns participate in brown bag sessions, which gives them the opportunity to hear from varying levels of staff while learning about their professional history and gaining deeper knowledge about how all the departments at EMILY’s List work. Our interns leave EMILY’s List ready for life on the campaign trail after attending our signature IGNITE Change training that will equip each intern with skills for beginning a career in campaigns.

EMILY’s List pays a stipend of up to $1,200 per month, dependent on the intern’s monthly schedule.

Interns have the flexibility to opt for a fully remote or hybrid internship experience. Hybrid interns will mutually agree on a weekly schedule for coming into the office with their respective supervisor.


  • Applicants must reside within the US for the duration of the program
  • Interns must be available to work between 9:00am and 6:00pm EST (full-time and part-time schedules available)
  • Interns must commit to working no less than 20 hours each week
  • Interns must commit to staying on board for a minimum of 10 weeks

EMILY’s List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, works to elect Democratic pro-choice women up and down the ballot and across the country with a goal of fighting for our rights and our communities. Our work is centered around a fundamental vision: Run. Win. Change the World. EMILY’s List has raised over $700 million in service to that vision and has helped Democratic women win competitive elections by recruiting and training candidates, supporting and helping build strong campaigns, researching the issues that impact women and families, running one of the largest independent expenditure campaigns for Democrats, and turning out women voters to the polls. Since our founding in 1985, we have helped elect the country’s first woman as vice president, 159 women to the House, 26 to the Senate, 16 governors, and nearly 1,400 women to state and local office. More than 40% of the candidates EMILY’s List has helped elect to Congress have been women of color. Visit www.emilyslist.org for more information.
