The NDU Foundation seeks talented undergraduate and graduate students to fill internship positions in the areas of development, communications, events, finances, and operations. Internships usually run concurrently with academic semesters, from January-May, June-August, and September-December; however, we accept applications on a rolling basis and are willing to negotiate start/end dates.
