Research Council Policy Internships

The Research Councils organise internships for current Research Council-funded PhD students to work at partner host organisations on a policy topic relevant to both the student and the host. The student will be expected to produce a briefing paper, participate in a policy inquiry and/or organise a policy event.

Internships are awarded to both parliamentary and non-parliamentary organisations.
