WPI RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT INTERNSHIP
Cited by Crain’s NY Business in 2006 as one of the most highly sought-after internships for ambitious students, WPI fielded more than 600 applications in 2013-2014. We hosted 40 interns who contributed brilliantly to our research, communications, development, marketing, public relations, event management, and editorial and online portfolio. Research and advocacy interns worked directly with WPI fellows; editorial interns played a significant role in expanding our multimedia presence, and were instrumental in developing our new weekly podcast series. This year’s interns have hailed from as far away as India, Australia, Pakistan, France, Trinidad, Germany, and Singapore. In addition to interns from each of the Ivy League schools, WPI hosted students from the University of Chicago, Georgetown, Vasser, Oberlin, and Sciences Po Paris, as well as from top New York institutions like NYU, Bard, Fordham, and Columbia. Recent interns have gone on to hold positions in business, policy, and media organizations including the Council on Foreign Relations, the Peace Corps, Time Magazine, ABC, Huffington Post, The Economist, U.S. Congress, and UNDP.
The Internship Program at the World Policy Institute offers advanced undergraduate and graduate students the opportunity to gain practical experience in policy research and advocacy on international issues by assisting with research for the Institute’s senior fellows and staff, and assisting with a variety of tasks involved in the operations of a respected center for innovative policy leadership.
