The Center for Poverty Research (CPR) at UC Davis in collaboration with Howard University, Morehouse College and Spelman College, invite undergraduates from these three HBCUs majoring in economics, psychology, sociology and education to apply to the UCD-SPREE program to introduce undergraduates to poverty research in the social sciences and develop skills for graduate school.
The Undergraduate Public Policy Internship provides an opportunity for undergraduate students to work closely with Center for Poverty Research staff to research current state and federal legislation to help disseminate the Center’s latest research.
In addition, interns receive training and mentorship to plan and execute a major outreach project. Previous year’s projects include Faculty Affiliate videos on poverty, social media campaigns, a survey of federal legislators and infographics.
