Internships are offered to about 50 students each year who work at IMF headquarters in Washington D.C., between June and October. Internships are a minimum of 10 weeks duration, and maximum of 12 weeks duration. Fund interns work under the supervision of experienced colleagues to carry out a research project, and prepare a research paper.
