Paid Internships

The Nuclear Age Peace Foundation offers paid summer internship positions at its Santa Barbara office. Interns must have a demonstrated interest in gaining hands-on experience working with a non-profit educational and advocacy organization. Applications for these positions were due by March 1, 2019. Applications for 2020 summer internships will be due by March 1, 2020.

Join Our Team

Interns will join our dedicated team of seven staff at our Santa Barbara headquarters to work on meaningful projects that advance our mission of educating, advocating, and inspiring action for a just and peaceful world, free of nuclear weapons.

We don’t expect our interns to have detailed knowledge of the physics behind nuclear weapons, nor to have years of relevant work experience. What we are looking for are highly-motivated, enthusiastic individuals who are dedicated to our mission and who want to make a real, lasting difference in the world.

  • Two letters of recommendation, at least one from a teacher or professor (letters can be collected and sent by you, or sent directly by the authors);
