Somers Aging and Long-Term Care Research Internship

 

Description

The National Academy of Social Insurance seeks outstanding graduate and upper division undergraduate students to serve as interns on aging and long-term care policy projects in Washington DC. Students studying economics, gerontology, political science, public policy, health policy, social work, actuarial science or related subjects are urged to apply for this 12-week summer semester internship. The Somers Aging and Long-Term Care Internship is designed to recognize qualified students and provide them with a challenging learning experience. This internship, compared to the Washington Internship on Social Insurance, focuses on aging and long-term care issues and is more research oriented. The Academy, as a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization devoted to furthering knowledge and understanding of social insurance programs, is uniquely qualified to provide students with challenging internship opportunities. The Academy's members, recognized experts in social insurance and health policy, offer the interns access to information and experiences found nowhere else. This is a nationally competitive program with only five placements made each year. Academic credit may be arranged through the intern's college or university. International Students with valid student visas can be placed with non-governmental organizations, if placement projects match their skills and interests.
