The National Center Research for Women & Families, or NRC, is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization dedicated to improving the lives of families.  The NRC promotes the health and safety of women, children, and families by employing objective, research-based information to encourage new and more effective policies.  The NRC is needed to “translate” research findings into information that is interesting and useful to the ordinary women, men, and children who are often underrepresented by the media and experts.  Instead of other national women’s organizations that focus mainly on reproductive rights and other women’s rights, the NRC focuses on using scientific and medical research information to improve the quality of women’s lives and the lives of their families.  

The National Research Center for Women & Families offers internships and fellowships for undergraduates, recent graduates, and graduate students in Winter, Spring, Summer, and Fall. NRC fully integrates interns and fellows as part of their team by working on projects such as gathering information, writing or co-authoring articles, press releases, and other pieces, attending various briefings and panel meetings, researching and analyzing data, communicating with major media, assisting with fundraising, and performing outreach to young adults.  Interns can participate in the program in one of three areas, Communications, Research, and Policy.
