MRC External Affairs Paid Internship - Summer 2024

Want to learn more about coalition relations, development and events? The Media Research Center is looking for interns in our External Affairs department! Our competitive internships pay $12/hr

As an External Affairs intern, you will assist our team with its outreach efforts to conservative organizations. You will help create weekly newsletters, event planning, updating and maintaining MRC contacts, and coordinating research projects essential to MRC success.

Check with your school's Internship Coordinator BEFORE accepting the hiring offer to determine if this position satisfies the criteria for receiving academic credit.

Qualifications of an MRC External Affairs intern:

  • Ability to present ideas concisely and clearly in writing
  • A passion for nonprofit work and a desire to promote MRC’s mission to supporters
  • A willingness to work with donors, both by phone and email in order to meet needs
  • Possible experience in fundraising, grant-writing, or database maintenance would be helpful, but not required

The Media Research Center is a 501(c)3 research and education organization that has been the nation’s premier media watchdog since 1987. We are committed to neutralizing left-wing bias in the news media and popular culture. We do this through journalism (, analysis and research (NewsBusters), blogs and video (MRCTV), and a complex grassroots and marketing initiative. Because we are a nonprofit, we are careful about our resources, and one of our greatest resources is a team of interns who are excited to learn and promote our work.

This internship is designed for conservative-minded students and recent graduates. We hire interns during three semesters (Fall, Spring, Summer).
