The Center for Families presents annual Family Impact Seminars to Indiana policy makers. These seminars educate state legislators about the implications for families of policy issues they are considering. Along with this internship, recipients will receive the Levien Scholarship, which was created to support students committed to fostering family values and bettering families. Each intern will receive a $1000 scholarship based on the quality of the student’s academic accomplishments and the fit of their work with the mission and ongoing work of the Center for Families.
CFF is happy to offer students two different possible internships:
Summer/Fall – The Summer/Fall Levien Family Policy Intern will begin the process of planning the Indiana Family Impact Seminar. This includes working with sponsoring organizations and legislators, conducting library research, and translating research to inform policymakers. (1 credit summer; 3 credits fall)
Fall /Spring – The Fall/Spring Levien Family Policy Intern will join the planning of the Indiana Family Impact Seminar and then conduct follow up research to the Indiana Family Impact Seminar and assist the Family Impact Institute in its efforts. (3 credits fall; 1 to 2 credits spring)
This scholarship is available thanks to the Leo and Elva Levien Family Fund for the Center for Families.
