The American Evaluation Association welcomes applications for its Graduate Education Diversity Internship Program that provides paid internship and training opportunities during the academic year. The GEDI program works to engage and support students from groups traditionally under-represented in the field of evaluation. The goals of the GEDI Program are to:
- Expand the pool of graduate students of color and from other under-represented groups who have extended their research capacities to evaluation.
- Stimulate evaluation thinking concerning under-represented communities and culturally responsive evaluation.
- Deepen the evaluation profession’s capacity to work in racially, ethnically and culturally diverse settings.
Interns may come from a variety of disciplines including public health, education, political science, anthropology, psychology, sociology, social work, and the natural sciences. Their commonality is a strong background in research skills, an interest in extending their capacities to the field of evaluation, and a commitment to thinking deeply about culturally responsive evaluation practice.
