Internships and Fellowships at CDF


Over the years, Children’s Defense Fund has welcomed hundreds of college students and recent graduates to serve as interns and join our work toward building a nation where marginalized children flourish, leaders prioritize their well-being, and communities wield the power to ensure they thrive.

CDF Fellowships

CDF happily considers requests to host individuals for fellowships, where the projects align with our areas of expertise and the fellow can identify their own outside source of funding. This includes current law students from any ABA-accredited law school seeking a postgraduate fellowship that is partially or fully funded by an external source, such as a Skadden fellowship, Equal Justice Works, Justice Catalyst, Soros, or a program funded by your school. If you would like to explore potential opportunities, please contact:
