National Federation of the Blind

Summer Internship Opportunities

The National Federation of the Blind (NFB) is the oldest and largest
nationwide organization of blind people in the United States. With an
affiliate in every state, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico, the
Federation is the voice of the nation's blind. In 2004, the NFB established
the Jernigan Institute as the first research and training facility developed
and directed by blind people. Through its members at the local level and
programs and services offered through the NFB Jernigan Institute in
Baltimore, Maryland, the Federation has established itself as a leader in
creating innovative education programs, technologies, research, and
partnerships that will forever change opportunities for the blind. As we
imagine and build a future full of opportunities, we are interested in
fostering leadership and innovation through NFB internships. 
NFB internships provide an opportunity for individuals to contribute to the
work of the Federation while gaining valuable work experience at the center
of innovation in the blindness field. NFB internships will be hosted at the
NFB headquarters in Baltimore, Maryland, and may last a month or a semester
depending on the needs of the NFB and the skills and interests of the
intern. Internship placements are currently available for the summer of
