    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Brookings Institution.

    Interview

    I applied online through a job board (indeed, internships.com, glassdoor, something like that) and then got an email saying they wanted to interview me on the phone. We spoke on the phone and they offered me the internship; this was all within like 2 weeks.
