The research councils organise the Policy Internships Scheme for current research council-funded doctoral students to work for three months in a highly influential policy organisation on one or more policy topics relevant to both the student and the host. The student will be expected to produce at least one briefing paper, participate in a policy inquiry and/or organise a policy event, or equivalent piece of work.
We’ve had great feedback from PGRs who have taken advantage of this scheme, and would really encourage eligible students to check it out.
Internships are available with a number of parliamentary departments, government departments and non-governmental bodies, learned societies and other organisations. Click the link below for a full list of host partners for the 2020/21 competition round, as well as information about how to apply:
Deadline for applications: 16:00 on 10 September 2020
