The Public Policy Center at UMass Dartmouth is seeking applicants for its 2015 Summer Internship Program for area high school students. The internship program is designed to give students hands-on experience conducting applied policy research on topics relevant to our region’s cities. Students will work alongside UMass Dartmouth undergraduate and graduate students to develop a project that is aligned with their interests and the needs of urban SouthCoast. In previous years, our interns undertook a research project to examine the issue of college access, explored the representativeness of local elected officials, and researched placemaking in the SouthCoast. These projects have resulted in reports, presentations, and local media coverage. We’re eager to see what this year’s interns will do!
