INTRODUCTION TO THE OFFICE OF NATIONAL DRUG CONTROL POLICY
The Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP) sets government-wide policy aimed at reducing the
availability of illicit and controlled substances, and reducing substance use through public health interventions
focused on preventing substance use, treatment for those dealing with substance use disorder, and developing and
strengthening programs for those in recovery.
INTERNSHIP DETAILS
The Summer 2022 internship term begins on May 16, 2022, and ends on August 12, 2022. Interns will receive
stipend payments of $375/week for part-time interns and $750/week for full-time interns. Part-time is considered a
minimum of 15 hours/week to 34 hours/week. Full-time is considered 35 – 40 hours/week. Stipend payments will
be calculated based on total weeks worked between 5/16/22 and 8/12/22; two thirds of the overall stipend amount
