  • Overview

    Resident Scholar Katharine Stevens leads AEI's new early childhood program, focusing on the research, policy, and politics of early care and education for children from birth through age four. In particular, her work focuses on the role of early learning in advancing opportunity for disadvantaged children; the role of high-quality childcare in increasing mobility of working families and enabling two-generation human capital development, especially in disadvantaged communities; how brain science can best inform early childhood policy; and how federal programs can advance state-level innovation and leadership in early childhood.


    An intern in early childhood department will assist with research and editing, event planning, and administrative tasks associated with this growing program. The ideal candidate will have strong research abilities; attention to detail; an interest in early childhood and family policy; curiosity and willingness to learn; strong interpersonal skills; and the ability to multi-task and learn and adapt to a multitude of tasks, projects and research topics.


    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.
