Looking for a real world experience conducting education research for the Summer 2013 semester? Want that research to be published? Then look no further. NSBA’s Center for Public Education (CPE) seeks a policy research intern to work closely with CPE’s senior policy analyst in conducting education policy research. Previous CPE interns have had their research published on this website as well as gained attention via the national media and you can too.
CPE is a national resource for accurate, timely, and credible information about public education and its importance to the well-being of our nation. CPE provides up-to-date research, data, and analysis on current education issues and explores ways to improve student achievement and engage public support for public schools.
Primary duties include: Write a research report to be published on the CPE website as well as summarize findings of significant education reports on CPE’s blog, update CPE’s previous reports, and attend briefings/conferences in the Washington, DC area.
Job qualifications: A graduate or undergraduate student studying education policy, public policy, statistics, economics, or a related field. The student should also have a strong interest in education policy and research.
The internship begins in late May and concludes in August and requires a minimum of 10 to 15 hours a week. The internship is unpaid. However, CPE will work with your school to satisfy any requirements for you to receive course credit.
