We Have a Place for You
The St. Louis Fed provides a variety of paid internships for undergraduate and graduate students. Most assignments are project-based. In addition to work experience, Bank internships also provide mentoring, networking and training opportunities to benefit students’ personal and professional development. Interns will gain exposure to a variety of business areas in the Bank.
We have opportunities for students studying in a variety of areas:
The week-long Bank Interdisciplinary Experience (BIE) capstone project gives students an opportunity to use their learned skills on real Bank issues with a team of other interns. Interns will get to use knowledge gained during the summer from both workshops and on-the-job experiences. Intern teams present the project solution at the end of the week to a panel of judges composed of Bank leaders. Judges evaluate each presentation based upon a consistent rubric. The winning team is announced at the BIE Week reception and awards ceremony.
