PRS offers rolling internships throughout the year. Interns provide valuable support to PRS work. The internship varies depending on the issues that come up for debate when the Parliament is in session, the needs of PRS and the interests of the intern.

The intern will be working out of the PRS office in New Delhi, assisting analysts in their research, as well as undertaking an internship project. The PRS staff comprises of a dedicated team of professionals with different areas of expertise including law, economics, political science, engineering and communication.

The duration of the internships is flexible, but is normally between four and eight weeks. The successful completion of a PRS internship requires the intern to pursue an internship project. The project is decided upon by the individual intern in consultation with analysts. At the end of their internship period, the intern would be expected to submit an internship project report and make a presentation to the PRS team on their project work.
