About Arms Control Association

Founded in 1971, the Arms Control Association is a nonprofit, nonpartisan membership organization dedicated to promoting public understanding of and support for effective arms control policies.  Through media, public education programs and its magazine, Arms Control Today, ACA provides the public with information on arms control issues.

Interns spend their time working on the magazine or performing administrative duties, researching and preparing fact sheets for use by the media and public, assisting analysts, tracking global arms control developments, attending and reporting on congressional hearings and security-related news and press conferences, and limited lobbying activities.  ACA internships are intended to provide interns with a substantive understanding of global arms control and related security issues, as well as the policymaking process in Washington.


Open to all college students, as well as recent grads and graduate students.  Non-U.S. citizens are eligible.  Demonstrated interest in arms control and related global security issues, and plans to pursue a career in the security field are preferred.
