“Through my experience as an Ambassador and Intern, I’ve had the opportunity to make a meaningful impact on important issues that will affect this generation and the next. For me, the work starts now as I exercise my right to vote and make my voice heard.”

Ambassador & Intern
Franklin & Marshall College


“To any student that is even remotely thinking about applying to Free the Facts’ leadership programs, I say absolutely go for it. Doing so has opened so many doors for me, and it has taken me to places that I had only dreamed of as a freshman in college.”

Daniela Kabeth
University of Michigan

I'm a bipartisan person – I like to work across the aisle, and the longer I have been in the program, the more I've found this deep love for public service… And I think that this organization is one of very, very few that are investing in the future of our nation’s public service.”

Charlie Schindler
Ambassador & Intern
The Ohio State University

Student Ambassadors are some of the most important people on our team. They connect us with their campuses and help us host events, liaise with faculty and administrators, and advise our organization's leadership.

In exchange, they receive advanced leadership training, networking and professional development opportunities, and are first in line for our Intern, Scholar, and Fellow Programs, which include generous financial support and housing in Washington, D.C.

Summer Internship Program

Available to college students entering their sophomore, junior, or senior years, our Summer Internship Program is a great opportunity to work alongside our team in Washington, D.C.

Interns receive a generous stipend, housing, and the opportunity to work on a variety of projects, including event production, program planning, policy research, and communication and marketing initiatives.

Even better? FtF interns are paid as if they are full-time, but they only work in our offices from Monday through Wednesday. This allows our interns to maximize their time in Washington, D.C. by pursuing volunteer opportunities, professional programs, and/or part-time professional positions with government offices or non-profit entities.

Fellow Program

Open to FtF Ambassadors with a proven track record of success, the Fellow Program is a year-round opportunity that helps clear many of the logistical challenges associated with taking on an internship focused on public service, public policy, or a related field.

Through the FtF Fellow Program, qualified Ambassadors are eligible for financial assistance that can be used toward housing, supplemental income, transportation, and other costs associated with pursuing an unpaid or underpaid internship.

Scholar Program

For graduating All-Star Ambassadors looking for a unique challenge, the Scholar Program offers the opportunity to develop and execute an independent project in support of FtF's mission while working alongside our team in D.C.
