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.
The Center for Poverty Research seeks applications from our affiliated faculty members who are interested in working with an undergraduate student on a poverty related research project. The Center anticipates providing up to 8 undergraduate students with internships during summer 2015.
