The Clements Center awards funds to undergraduate and graduate students who secure unpaid internships in the fields of national security and foreign policy. Awards will be granted to those students whose work best reflects the mission and goals of the Clements Center. Past recipients have interned with the US Department of State, the Center for Strategic and International Studies, the United Nations, the Institute for the Study of War, and the American Enterprise Institute.

Because internships in foreign and defense policy can be an essential part of professional development and career opportunities in national security policy, the Clements Center wants to help UT students in identifying and pursuing internship opportunities. We have created a database containing information on a broad range of internships in foreign and defense policy. UT students are encouraged to use this in researching and applying for internships.
**The Clements Center does not award funding to cover lost wages during remote or virtual internships and only under exceptional circumstances will we consider funding virtual internships. To be considered for funding for remote internships, students must demonstrate tangible financial impact that results from the virtual internship.**
