Non-Parliamentary Internships in Australia

ANIP internships

ANIP internships are research-based, policy-focused and open to students across The Australian National University. Students receive course credit for this internship, so approval from your course convener must be sought to undertake an ANIP internship as part of your approved course program.

Applications are open each year from March to April for internship placements in semester two, and from August to September for internship placements in semester one. For more information, visit our Apply page: and read our Frequently Asked Questions.

Funding for students undertaking internships interstate
The ANIP Travel Grant enables students to undertake ANIP internships outside of Canberra. Eligibility for an ANIP Travel Grant will be advised once you submit your application.
