The Alaska Permanent Fund Corporation offers qualified Alaska students an opportunity to intern in the asset management field.   Hundreds of Alaska students have enjoyed internships with APFC since we began this program in 1988.

Our internships are typically best suited for students of business, accounting, finance, economics and related majors - and occasionally IT or engineering.   A wide variety of our asset managers throughout the country offer internships through this program, exposing students to many aspects of institutional investing that help them better understand different career paths.


The links on this page will walk you through all the information required to participate in our program. If you have any questions, contact our internship coordinator, Shawn Lew at (907) 796-1540.

Internships are posted each February through April.

APFC Summer Interns 2013



"This internship taught me a lot about a fast-paced, dynamic industry and gave me the chance to learn about finance with incredibly intelligent people in a comfortable environment.  I am grateful to the McKinley team and to APFC for coordinating the intern program, and I look forward to similarly educational and enjoyable experiences in the future."
