District of Columbia Public Schools requested that we pass this opportunity along to our readers. DCPS is currently accepting applications from graduate students who are interested in the opportunity to conduct research and work on education policy projects.
Urban Education Leaders Internship Program (UELIP)
DCPS is working to create a new paradigm for education through working toward innovation in the field of urban education across the District. As a part of this initiative, we are pleased to host our Urban Education Leaders Internship Program.
The Chancellor’s Urban Education Leaders Internship Program (UELIP) is an intensive multi-disciplinary, academic internship program that runs semester-long throughout the year. This program is designed for leaders enrolled in undergraduate or graduate/professional degree programs or recent graduates.
What Associates Do:
Associates conduct research and work on education policy projects under the direction of key leaders of the chancellor’s team. Associates are charged with the responsibility of creating innovative and outside-the-box solutions to systemic urban education challenges. Ultimately, the goal of the program is to expose associates to current critical educational reform issues, introduce them to exciting issues around managing an urban school system, and provide networking opportunities with education leaders and agency heads in local government.
Program Grade Levels:
* Undergraduates: all disciplines
* Graduate Students: all disciplines, particularly public policy, education, law, etc.
Unpaid; academic credit/work study possible; economic hardship stipends available upon application.
