Elizabeth Ducey Summer Internships in Public PolicyThe Ducey Internship Program has been established to provide students with the opportunity to spend a summer working and researching full-time in a policy making organization. Most policy-oriented internships are unpaid, which makes it difficult for some students to participate in them. The Ducey Program provides $3,000 annually to each of two Reed students who have been accepted as unpaid interns at policy-related agencies. Students are responsible for making arrangements with the agency involved prior to applying for the Ducey Program in the spring. Acceptable agencies include not only actual governmental offices, but also partisan and issue-oriented organizations aimed at influencing public policy. Returning students are expected to write a report describing their internship activities and make a public presentation to the Reed community during the following fall semester.
The Ducey Internship Program is administered by the Reed Department of Political Science, but is open to economics majors and other Reed students with a strong interest in public policy. Eligibility is limited to Reed students who will be returning the next academic year. For more information, contact Lois Hobbs, the division's faculty secretary.
