The GSP Undergraduate Internship
The GSP Undergraduate Internship invites rising undergraduate seniors of diverse backgrounds to be part of multidisciplinary teams developing evaluation research on current social policy issues at our NYC office.
The eight-week internship provides the opportunity to work with MDRC teams on a range of organizational and analytical tasks, as well as participate in regular meetings to network and learn more about the context of MDRC’s policy work. Interns will also have the chance to attend trainings and talks to develop specific skills and knowledge areas.
Apply by February 15 for summer 2021 internships.
