Summer, fall, & spring paid internships for qualified undergraduates, graduate students, and recent graduates
The Congressional-Executive Commission on China (www.cecc.gov) is offering paid internships to qualified undergraduates, graduate students, or recent graduates this coming summer in Washington, D.C.
Interns must be U.S. citizens.
The application deadline is
March 1 , 2011
for the Summer 2011 internship that runs from
June to August, 2011
Summer internships are generally full-time; interns are expected to work 40 hours per week. See application instructions below.
CECC internships provide significant educational and professional experience for undergraduates, graduate students, or recent graduates with a background in Chinese politics, law, and society, and strong Chinese language skills.
Interns work closely with the Commission and its staff on the full array of issues concerning human rights, the rule of law, and governance in China (including criminal justice, democratic governance institutions, environmental problems, religious freedom, freedom of expression, ethnic minority rights, women's rights, etc.).
Interns perform important research support tasks (often in Chinese), attend seminars, meet Members of Congress and experts from the United States and abroad, and draft Commission analyses.

Interns may also be trained to work with the Commission's Political Prisoner Database, which has been accessible by the public since its launch in November 2004.
The CECC staff is committed to interns' professional development, and holds regular roundtables for interns on important China-related issues.
Summer 2011 interns will be paid $10/hour. Those unable to apply for the Summer internship may apply for the Fall (September-December) or Spring (February - May) internships. Further details are available on the Commission's website at http://www.cecc.gov/pages/general/employ.php.
