AEA Graduate Education Diversity Internship
We’ve recently received word from our friends at AEA that the GEDI program opening applications for the 2013/2014 academic year. See below for more information:
The AEA Graduate Education Diversity Internship (GEDI) program works to engage and support students from groups traditionally under-represented in the field of evaluation. The goals of GEDI are to:
- Expand the pool of graduate students of color and from other underrepresented groups who have extended their research capacities to evaluation.
- Stimulate evaluation thinking concerning underrepresented 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.
