Graduate-level students who will continue with their studies in the 2016-17 academic year at local universities, including Harvard University, MIT, Boston University, Suffolk University, Northeastern University, UMass Boston, Brandeis, and Tufts University, who are studying in programs with public-policy implications for the Greater Boston metropolitan area or the Commonwealth of Massachusetts are eligible for our program.
Students can come from a wide range of fields, including: architecture and design, business administration, economics, education, ethnic studies, divinity, engineering, environmental studies, geography, medicine, nursing, political science, public health, psychology, public policy, sociology, urban policy and planning, and women's studies. Students from other disciplines are welcome to apply for internships as well, as long as their study somehow relates to public policy issues in Greater Boston. (Law students at local law schools are eligible for a separate Rappaport internship program coordinated by the Rappaport Center for Law and Public Service. For more information, contact Lissy Medvedow, Executive Director.)
