The Urban Land Institute, located at 2001 L Street, NW, has paid internship opportunities for outstanding graduate and undergraduate students.
District Councils deliver the Institute’s mission at the local level. They engage local members through developing various ULI priority programs, hosting educational forums, and convening events such as special initiative conferences keyed to the release of publications like Emerging Trends in Real Estate. By conducting community outreach programs and providing industry expertise to community leaders, District Councils focus on opportunities to foster collaboration locally and build healthy, sustainable communities.

Overview of Internship:
Intern(s) could participate in a range of activities, including:
- Preparation of a report, Lessons Learned: Case Studies of Strategic Land Use, which contains advice provided by ULI experts to local governments in the area of affordable housing and/or urban revitalization. The case studies will be drawn from ULI’s technical assistance panels (TAPs) prepared by ULI members in District Councils in cities across the country. Preparation for this report will involve researching, curating, and analyzing the recommendations of the TAPs and writing a user-friendly report for dissemination to the global ULI membership.
- Documentation of ULI programming and initiatives that inform public officials about best practices for building healthy thriving communities. This documentation will involve interviewing ULI District Council staff about specific programs, collecting examples of materials and reports, and writing a step-by-step operational guide that will facilitate replication of successful programming by other District Councils for public-sector engagement in ULI.
- Assistance with other administrative projects for managing a national network of 50 offices run by ULI staff.
Strong candidates will be undergraduate or graduate students in an urban planning or a related field. Candidates should have good research capabilities. Strong written, oral, and verbal communication skills are a must.
The ULI summer intern program will run from June 6 through August 7. Workweeks are 37.5 hours.
