Program Status

Applications are now closed for our Summer 2022 Internship Program. Please check back in July for information about our Fall 2022 internships.

The health and safety of our employees and our community is a top priority as we navigate the coronavirus pandemic. Throughout all of this, we have continued to serve our members, advocate for businesses, and support our communities.

The U.S. Chamber requires all U.S.-based employees and interns to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 prior to their start date. The U.S. Chamber is an equal opportunity employer and will make reasonable accommodations to those unable to be vaccinated where it is not an undue hardship to the company to do so as provided under federal, state, and local law.

This will be a hybrid internship and will be conducted in-person in our Washington D.C. offices and remotely. Applicants may select either monetary compensation or academic credit.

The Next-Gen Scholars program exposes students from historically black colleges and universities and minority-serving institutions to the world of business, public policy, government affairs and advocacy through summer internships at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, member companies and trade associations, thereby contributing to the development of the next generation of diverse business leaders.

To be eligible for the Next-Gen Scholars program, you must be currently enrolled in an HBCU or other minority-serving institution.
