There’s currently a lot happening on the foreign policy front, and it’s hard to imagine a future where foreign policy isn’t even more important than it is now. Our world has become extremely interconnected, and it’s becoming more and more important that we get along with our neighbors. There are all kinds of non-profits working on these issues, and one is the Center for The National Interest, which is based in Washington, DC. The organization was founded by former President Nixon as the Nixon Center for Peace and Freedom, but they rebranded in 2011. They typically take the Realist perspective (here’s the Wikipedia article) on foreign policy, which is based on the belief “that mankind is not inherently benevolent but rather self-centered and competitive.”

Take Interest

The Center for National Interest “has five main programs: Chinese Studies, Immigration and National Security, Energy Security and Climate Change, Regional Strategic Programs (Middle East, Caspian Basin and South Asia), and U.S. – Russia Relations.” They also publish a bimonthly magazine called The National Interest, which is focused on foreign affairs. You can learn more about the organization’s programs here, and you might also want to look over their brochure for a broader view of what they do. If you like what you see, you take a look at the Center for The National Interest’s Internships page. Right now they’re looking for unpaid interns in U.S.- China Relations, U.S. – Russia Relations, Energy Security and Climate, and Regional Security Programs (Middle East and Caspian Basin). The page says the deadline is September 15th for Fall internships, but I did see a posting for the U.S. – Russia Relations position that stated the deadline is 9/28. I’m not sure if they might still accept applications for the other positions, but at the very least you can apply for the spring.
