AEA Graduate Education Diversity Internship 2011


Recommended Posts

The American Evaluation Association welcomes applications for its Graduate Education Diversity Internship (GEDI) Program that provides paid internships and training opportunities for academic year 2011/2012. The GEDI program works to engage and support students from groups traditionally underrepresented in the field of evaluation. Interns may come from a variety of disciplines, including public health, education, political science, anthropology, psychology, sociology, social work, and the natural sciences.

Interns receive support from advisors and mentors, quality training focused on evaluation, real-world work experience, registration waivers and guidance at two professional evaluation conferences, and multiple opportunities for professional networking. In recognition of the time involved in the program, each intern also receives an $8,000 stipend and is reimbursed for major travel expenses related to the program.

We seek students who are:

- Are enrolled in a masters or doctoral-level program and have completed the equivalent of one full year of graduate level coursework;

- Have already been exposed to research methods and substantive issues in their field of expertise;

- Demonstrate via written essays the relevance of evaluation training to their career plans and their commitment to culturally responsive practice;

- Are eligible to work in the United States (non-U.S. citizens will be asked to provide documentation of eligibility); and

- Have support from his/her academic advisor.

To apply: Download the GEDI Application at http://www.eval.org/gedip.htm and return all requested materials via email as described on that document on or before June 23, 2011.

Questions: Should you have any further questions, please contact Dr. Katrina Bledsoe via email at kbledsoe@edc.org regarding the program.
