Asking About Internship Availability

Here is our template and some tips:

  • Use "Inquiring about Internship Availability" for your email subject line.
  • Address the internship coordinator by name if possible.
  • Start by introducing yourself – give your school and major.
  • Tell them that you will be in DC with the Washington Program in <Quarter Year> and are interested in interning with them.
  • Write a sentence or two expressing why you want to work for them specifically.
  • Tell them the specific dates that you will be in DC and ask whether they offer an internship during this time, and if so, how to apply.
  • Thank them for their time.
