Why TFAS Interns


Many organizations throughout the D.C. area advertise for interns, collect cover letters and resumes, spend weeks wading through the hundreds of applications and conduct interviews until the chosen few are selected. Is it worth taking all that time to make sure you have top notch interns? Absolutely – but we think there’s a better way.

By hosting a TFAS intern, we will work as your office’s personal HR department by screening candidates and only passing along the applications of students who meet your criteria. Click on the Placement Process tab to the right to learn about how our staff will find an intern that is a strong fit for your needs.

Not only will you be able to choose from top candidates through TFAS, you can be guaranteed students that are engaged.  By participating in a fully well-rounded program such as ours, we’ve found that interns are more likely to be on time, reliable, and committed to an organization’s goals. TFAS provides this foundation for its interns through extensive orientation upon arrival to the city as well as enriching activities throughout their time in D.C. including classes at George Mason University, a weekly lecture series, and professional development sessions.

“The Fund for American Studies did an excellent job placing my student interns.  They understood what skills were needed and matched students to fulfill my office requirements.”

“TFAS provided a thorough package of information to introduce the student to our organization.  We were able to review his academic scholarship and internship goals and clearly identify that we would both benefit by his experience through an internship.  Without hesitation, we acknowledge the thoroughness of TFAS in its recruitment of students and placement process.”
