“Opening doors of opportunity, guaranteeing some more fairness and justice — that’s the essence of America. That’s democracy in action.”

President joe biden

President Biden and Vice President Harris have committed to building an Administration that looks like America, believing that qualified people from every background and walk of life should have equal opportunity to serve our Nation.

That commitment is reflected in each White House Internship Program class, and all who are interested and meet the established criteria are highly encouraged to apply.

Applicants will need to create an account the first time they access the portal, and will submit two letters of recommendation as part of the application.

Key Dates for the Fall 2022 Session

Applications will be reviewed by the White House Internship Program team on a rolling basis during the application window; completed applications will be reviewed as soon as they are received. Therefore, candidates are encouraged to submit their applications sooner rather than later in the application period.
