Please note that due to Covid this internship has been remote for the past two years. However as conditions permit, we anticipate returning to work in The Nation’s NYC office for at least some of the internship, and while we will consider applications from candidates who prefer to work remotely, we will give preference to those able to be in NY metropolitan area during the internship.
