PELL EDUCATION RESEARCH & POLICY INTERNSHIP

The internship can be 4, 8, or 12 weeks and is open to students who are interested in gaining research experience in the higher education policy arena. Interns should be highly motivated, organized, and able to work well independently. Interns may work closely with researchers at the Pell Institute, and, on occasion, assist Council for Opportunity in Education (COE) staff.

The internship experiences are crafted around interns' skills and interests. The types of education research and policy analysis the Pell Institute is or has engaged include but are not limited to:
