Purdue’s Office of Global Affairs and Global Policy Research Institute (GPRI) are expanding their Policy Scholar Internship Program in Chicago, Indianapolis, and Washington, DC. This program, open to undergraduate and graduate students from all colleges, is designed to provide Purdue students with experiential learning opportunities related to policy. In addition, this program enables students to experience DC’s unique political culture, explore career interests, and develop professional networks.
The Office of Global Affairs will provide interns with housing and a scholarship to aid in financial challenges students may encounter if participating in an unpaid internship.
