This is a great internship. Here is what our current student there wrote about her experience:
“In my internship, I do not do anything with Marriage and Family Therapy. I have done legal research concerning them, accompanied my supervisor on lobbying visits to help them be in bills, had the privilege of doing the lobbying visit and being accompanied by my supervisor, etc. I have more responsibility than I ever thought I would and have never been asked to make copies, get coffee, etc. (not that there’s anything wrong with it), but because of everything they have asked me to do, I have been able to learn more than I could have imagined and have loved it! They really invest in their interns and treat them like colleagues as opposed to interns. I am the only intern there and even have a desk! Anyway, this internship has exceeded my expectations in every way, and if you want to put the word out that it is an incredible internship or if anyone can’t decide where to go, it may be a really great place.”
Interest in public policy with strong research and writing skills.
