Project Background

The National Security Project (NSP) is committed to developing realistic and robust bipartisan policy recommendations for the principal national security and foreign policy issues confronting the United States. With a number of ongoing projects, NSP works with ideologically diverse groups of distinguished experts to address today’s rapidly evolving international challenges, including BPC Senior Fellow General Jim Jones. Our projects range in focus from determining appropriate policy responses to very specific and timely international situations to considering more broadly the shape and direction of global politics in the 21st century.


The intern will work directly with the NSP team, as well as other members of BPC staff. Specific duties include (but are not limited to): in-depth research on a variety of national security issues; contributing to the drafting, proofreading, and editing of NSP reports; and providing administrative support for NSP events and outreach.


BPC seeks an intern to assist the national security team with both the day-to-day and larger-scope requirements of a demanding and rewarding work environment. All undergraduate and graduate students are eligible to apply. Successful applicants will have a strong research background in national security issues, excellent writing and editing skills, and strong organizational abilities. Applicants must also be able to work constructively as part of a team operating under deadlines.
