ABOUT US READING LEARNING COMMUNITY CAREER FIND AN EVALUATOR MEMBERS ONLY

WE'RE LOOKING FOR A FEW GOOD INTERNSHIP HOST SITES!
Deadline: Monday, April 22, 2013

We're searching for host sites for AEA's Graduate Education Diversity Internship (GEDI) Program. Host sites provide meaningful evaluation project work and mentoring to interns. Interns are among the best and brightest, who are learning through the internship to transfer their strong inquiry skills to real-life situations in organizations, agencies, and firms.

Hosting a GEDI is a unique opportunity to help to build evaluation's future through fostering the professional growth of an intern from a background under-represented in the field. A number of host sites have found the GEDI experience so positive as to invite their intern to continue in a part- or full-time capacity upon completion of the internship.

Interns work two days per week, September through June. Finalists are selected by an advisory team based on the applicant's capacity and interests and the site's needs, and then each site interviews and selects from among 2-3 finalists to identify the intern most appropriate to its situation, capacity, and context.

Host site obligations include:

  • Providing a meaningful evaluation internship experience
  • Identifying a staff member with significant evaluation experience to serve as an on-site mentor
  • Paying directly to the intern the $8,000 stipend and to AEA the $10,000 program participation costs

Download the site questionnaire and check out the GEDI website to learn more about applying to serve as a host site, then email AEA's Executive Director Susan Kistler at susan@eval.org by April 22 to discuss this unique opportunity to work with tomorrow’s leaders today.

Please note that the call for interns will be available online and distributed to AEA members the first week in May.
