AEI’s Poverty Studies program seeks to identify and develop better policies to improve the work and welfare of low-income Americans. The Poverty Studies program addresses a host of social services programs, including cash welfare, food assistance, and employment programs, among many others. Internship duties will include specific research tasks for AEI Poverty Studies scholars and staff including data manipulation, retrieval, and analysis; creating and formatting charts, graphic displays, and tables; helping to organize conferences and seminars related to poverty studies; and some administrative tasks. Those with interest in social services policy and with a background in economics are encouraged to apply.
Intern Scholarship Program
In the fall of 2019, AEI will offer up to six intern candidates a $1,000 monthly living stipend as part of a new need-based scholarship program. Our hope is to allow students who would not be able to do so without financial assistance to reap the academic, professional, and personal benefits of interning at AEI. Applications will be accepted and reviewed on a rolling basis until Friday, August 2. To apply for the scholarship, please click here.
