Other benefits include a clean transit subsidy, professional development, office events, and all staff retreats, just to name a few.

Internships and fellowships

We help train the next generation of transportation policy analysts and hires individuals who possess the intelligence, willingness, dedication, and maturity to take on enormous responsibility. Our interns play an active role in a variety of our current projects. Over the course of an internship or fellowship, our interns and fellows work directly with ICCT researchers and policy analysts in one or more program areas.

Our internship program is targeted toward students currently enrolled or who have just finished a graduate degree program and offers positions throughout the year (including summer break). Interns are typically asked to prepare analyses and help draft publications or blogs. Internships are typically offered part or full-time for 3 months or less. Interns receive the benefits of sick pay, paid holidays, and a clean transportation subsidy.


We also offer fellowships within our program areas and in communications. Fellowships are typically offered full-time and last between 3 and 12 months. Fellows receive the benefits of paid vacation, sick pay, paid holidays, a pre-tax clean transportation subsidy, and are eligible to enroll in our health insurance.
