About the Program
Each summer the Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Society at Harvard 
University swings open the doors of our vibrant yellow house to welcome a group 
of talented and curious students as full-time interns - 
 - who are passionate about the promise of the Internet. Finding connected and 
complementary research inquiries among their diverse backgrounds, students 
represent all levels of study, are being trained in disciplines across the 
board, and come from universities all over the world to tackle issues related 
to the core of the Center’s research agenda. Summer interns jump head first 
into the swirl of the Berkman Klein universe, where they are deeply and 
substantively involved in our research projects and efforts.

Becoming invaluable contributors to the Center’s operation and success, interns 
conduct collaborative and independent research under the guidance of Berkman 
Klein staff, fellows, and faculty. Specific roles, tasks, and experiences vary 
depending on Center needs and interns' skills; a select list of expected 
opportunities for this coming summer is below. Typically, the workload of each 
intern is primarily based under one project or suite of projects, with 
encouragement and flexibility to get involved in additional projects across the 

In addition to joining research teams, summer interns participate in special 
lectures with Berkman Klein Center faculty and fellows, engage each other 
through community experiences like weekly interns discussion hours, and attend 
Center-wide events and gatherings with members of the wider Berkman Klein 
community. As well, each year interns establish new channels for fun and 
learning, such as organizing 
 and pub quizzes; establishing reading groups and book clubs; 
 podcasts and 
 and hosting potlucks, cook-offs, and BBQs (fortunately for us, people 
share).The word "awesome" has been thrown around to describe our internships, 
but don't take our word for it. Former intern Zachary McCune had this to say: 
"it has been an enchanting summer working at the berkman center for internet & 
society.  everyday, i get to hang out with some of the most brilliant people on 
the planet. we talk, we write (emails), we blog, we laugh, we play rock band. 
and when things need to get done, we stay late hyped on free coffee and 
leftover food. it is a distinct honor to be considered a peer among such 
excellent people. and i am not just talking about the fellows, staff, and 
faculty, though they are all outstanding. no, i mean my peers as in my fellow 
interns, who are almost definitely the ripening next generation of 

Time Commitment
The summer 2017 program will run from Monday, June 5, 2017 through Friday, 
August 11, 2017.  Summer internships are full time positions (35 hours/week).

Interns are paid $11.50 an hour, with the exception of certain opportunities 
for law students who receive summer public interest funds (more about these 
specific cases at the link for law students below).

No other benefits are provided, and interns must make their own housing, 
insurance, and transportation arrangements.

Commitment to Diversity
The work and well-being of the Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Society are 
profoundly strengthened by the diversity of our network and our differences in 
background, culture, experience, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, 
gender, gender identity, race, ethnicity, age, disability, and much more. We 
actively seek and welcome people of color, women, the LGBTQIA community, 
persons with disabilities, and people at intersections of these identities, 
from across the spectrum of disciplines and methods.
