Undergraduate Internship

The Women and Public Policy Program (WAPPP) of Harvard Kennedy School closes gender gaps in economic opportunity, political participation, health and education by creating knowledge, training leaders and informing public policy and organizational practices. Our research provides evidence-based insights on the role of gender in shaping economic, political and social opportunities available to individuals. We identify successful interventions and measure their impact on women, men, and society, then share recommendations on what policies, organizational practices and leadership techniques help close involuntary gaps.

WAPPP is seeking full-time undergraduate interns for the summer months to contribute to our fast-paced office and high functioning administrative team. Internship responsibilities may include: logistical support for events, updating documents, drafting correspondence, drafting talking points, collecting background research on speakers or topics, making basic website changes, proofreading and editing, and other tasks as needs arise. 

Applications for summer 2017 are now closed. 

Interested candidates should be high achieving and independently motivated rising juniors or seniors in college with a demonstrated interest in gender and/or public policy. Strong writing skills are required and past professional experiences are a plus. Past experience with video editing or social media management are also a plus but not required. This is a paid position starting at $15/hr. To apply send a resume, cover letter, and brief writing sample to Danielle Boudrow at danielle_boudrow@hks.harvard.edu. We are an equal opportunity employer and all qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability status, protected veteran status, gender identity, sexual orientation or any other characteristic protected by law.
