Here's how it works:

While we can't guarantee that you'll land an internship on Capitol Hill, the Secular Coalition will work with you to get your resume and cover letter through the door to elected offices and do everything in our power to help you land a highly coveted internship on Capitol Hill.

Applicants who are accepted for internships will then officially become part of our Capitol Hill Scholars Program, where we will offer you fantastic learning and networking opportunities and the tools and skills you need to be a nontheist advocate on Capitol Hill.

We also hope to offer a stipend for students who are part of the Scholars Program based on financial need.

If you are interested in this summer internship opportunity, contact Sasha Bartolf, the Legislative Director for the Secular Coalition for America, to begin the process of applying to work on Capitol Hill. You can email her directly at sasha[AT]secular[DOT]org

Secular Student Alliance Members & Affiliates


The Secular Student Alliance sees a lot of confusion when it comes to ways that people can become a part of the organization. What does it mean to join? How do you become a member? How are groups involved as opposed to individuals?

There are two main ways to get involved with the Secular Student Alliance. Any individual person, regardless of age or student status, can join the SSA as a member. A student group can get involved with the SSA by applying to become an affiliate. Read on to learn the differences between the two and what it all means!
