Food Safety Internship


Center for Science in the Public Interest

Washington, DC

The Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI) is a national consumer organization that focuses on health and nutrition issues. CSPI offers internships for a small number of qualified students in undergraduate, graduate, law, and medical schools each summer and during the school year.


CSPI was started in 1971 by three scientists who saw the need for an organization to evaluate the effects of science and technology on society and to promote national policies responsive to consumers' interests. CSPI focuses primarily on health and nutrition issues, disclosing deceptive marketing practices, dangerous food additives or contaminants, and flawed science propagated by profits. Findings are communicated in press interviews and a variety of educational materials, which include reports, books, posters, software, videos, and the Center's Nutrition Action Healthletter.

Generally, an internship is for ten weeks. We have a limited number of paid internships: undergraduate interns are paid an hourly wage of $8.25/hour; and graduate students earn $9.25/hour. The specific dates of an internship are flexible and depend on our needs and the applicant's schedule.

Listed below is an internship position available at CSPI this fall. To apply, please submit a cover letter, including dates of availability, and resume to Please include the name of the internship in the email subject line.
