CHARLOTTE – The Democratic National Convention Committee is currently accepting applications from undergraduate and graduate college students to serve as summer interns. The program is open to students at colleges and universities across the country and is a unique opportunity to take part in the behind-the-scenes events of the Democratic National Convention.
